What is sustainable tourism and why is it important? Ciaran from ProfileTree was joined by consultant Mike Ball via 'Zoom' link for a Business Leaders series video interview. Mike, who is a tourism expert with over 20 years of experience in the industry, is now a freelance tourism consultant offering his experience in a wide range of tourism specialisms. Many of the services he provides include analysis of tourism markets and development of tourism products and destinations. Mike explained: "These days I'm mostly concerned with sustainable tourism markets, for instance a niche would be eco-tourism, eco-accomdation or sustainable marine tourism, that kind of thing." He also outlined his path to becoming a tourism industry specialist. "I'm half Indonesian by birth and I was brought up in Africa. So in a way, I was always travelling from a very young age. My main interest, how I came into tourism was when I became a VSO (Voluntary Service Overseas) after my first degree. "I went to Tanzania and was working on an agricultural project. In was right out in the bush in Tanzania and what became clear to me was that people have to get value out of protecting the environment around them. "I became interested in tourism that way and eco-tourism. I came back from Tanzania and did a Masters degree. I wrote my thesis on eco-tourism and after that I did a bit of work with NGO's. "This involved working with education and producing text-books about eco-tourim and conservation. Then I worked for a tour operator for over ten years." This blend of experience led Mike to establish himself as a freelance consultant, while still working for the tour operator and writing too. "I was writing articles for magazines such as BBC wildlife magazine, Geographical and stuff like that. Generally news articles on sustainable tourism. I then came across an opportunity at Mintel and have been working for them ever since." "I don't want to talk too much about Brexit, but it is on everyone's lips at the moment. It's going to have a major impact on tourism no matter what happens, in fact its already having a big impact on tourism. So the government has a key influence on what happens in tourism. "Tourism is a unique industry, in which almost everything has an impact on tourism. Economics, politics, conservation, retail, utilities, construction, food industries, almost everything impacts on tourism and the government has a major influence on all these sectors, therefore it has a major role to play."

Tourism Management Perspectives January 2018 Special Issue: Top Tourism Thoughts - https://www.sciencedirect.com/journal/tourism-management-perspectives/vol/25/suppl/C Sustainable tourism: Sustaining tourism or something more? Freya Higgins-Desbiolles Abstract: Tourism today has a problem. It is addicted to growth, which is incompatible with sustainability goals. Despite three decades discussing pathways to sustainable tourism, tourism authorities continue to promote tourism growth despite the ecological and social limits of living on a finite planet. This article argues that tourism must be understood and managed with a wider context of sustainability. Additionally, strategic approaches to transitioning to a sufficiency approach to tourism and leisure is essential if sustainability is to be secured. Recommendations include: transforming the United Nations World Tourism Organization into an Office for Sustainable Mobilities, creating a global Tourism Wealth Fund, fostering diverse approaches to tourism strategies for development and regulating and managing tourism for a better balanced accounting for fairness, ecological limits, human benefit and sustainable futures. The growth fetish is resulting in tourism killing tourism. An approach focused on sustaining tourism is not a sustainable form of tourism. Access: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.tmp.2017.11.017

Tourism is widely recognised as an industry with huge potential for sustaining economic growth, promoting inclusive development and protecting the environment. To advance the power of tourism for sustainability, it is imperative for all tourism stakeholders to maximise tourism socio-economic contribution while minimising its negative impacts on the environment in line with the Sustainable Development Goals. This session will focus on how tourism could be a catalyst for positive change in terms of sustainable economic growth, social inclusiveness, employment and poverty reduction, resource efficiency, environment protection and climate change, cultural values, diversity and heritage and mutual understanding, peace and security. The role of technology in mainstreaming sustainability practices in tourism development will also be examined. Speaker: Dr Luigi Cabrini, Chairman, Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC) Dr Cabrini is the Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Global Sustainable Tourism Council, and former Director of Sustainable Tourism at the UNWTO.

https://mocomi.com/ presents: What is Sustainability? An informative video on Sustainability, For humans, sustainability is the potential for long-term maintenance of well being, which has ecological, economic, political and cultural dimensions. Here are a few ways in which your actions can contribute to sustainability. Lifestyle - Your lifestyle is your choice and you can change it. For example, when you go to the grocery store, make sure you always carry a cloth bag. This way the shopkeeper does not have to give you many plastic bags. Fixing - If your watch, or a toy, or a camera is broken or not working, try getting it fixed before you buy yourself a new one. Recycle - Try and be conscious about the things around you. When you consume something, see if you can re-use it later. Learn more about how we can contribute to sustainability.

ECOTOURISM meaning - ECOTOURISM pronunciation - ECOTOURISM definition - ECOTOURISM explanation - How to pronounce ECOTOURISM? Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Ecotourism is a form of tourism involving visiting fragile, pristine, and relatively undisturbed natural areas, intended as a low-impact and often small scale alternative to standard commercial (mass) tourism. Its purpose may be to educate the traveler, to provide funds for ecological conservation, to directly benefit the economic development and political empowerment of local communities, or to foster respect for different cultures and for human rights. Since the 1980s ecotourism has been considered a critical endeavor by environmentalists, so that future generations may experience destinations relatively untouched by human intervention.:33 Several university programs use this description as the working definition of ecotourism. Generally, ecotourism deals with living parts of the natural environments. Ecotourism focuses on socially responsible travel, personal growth, and environmental sustainability. Ecotourism typically involves travel to destinations where flora, fauna, and cultural heritage are the primary attractions. Ecotourism is intended to offer tourists insight into the impact of human beings on the environment, and to foster a greater appreciation of our natural habitats. Responsible ecotourism programs include those that minimize the negative aspects of conventional tourism on the environment and enhance the cultural integrity of local people. Therefore, in addition to evaluating environmental and cultural factors, an integral part of ecotourism is the promotion of recycling, energy efficiency, water conservation, and creation of economic opportunities for local communities. For these reasons, ecotourism often appeals to advocates of environmental and social responsibility. The term 'ecotourism', like 'sustainable tourism', is considered by many to be an oxymoron. Like most forms of tourism, ecotourism generally depends on air transportation, which contributes to global climate change. Additionally, "the overall effect of sustainable tourism is negative, where, like ecotourism, philanthropic aspirations mask hard-nosed immediate self-interest." Ecotourist is different from a Tourist in the sense that, he or she is mindful of his environment, in most cases contributing to the sustainability of such surroundings.

Things such as waste, food and transportation are presented in a simple way with a superhero (Ecoman) and a vilain (Dump-it-man). Original script written by Marion and Pauline from sb factory. Adaptation and translation into English: Sarah Brooks. Illustrations (inspired by drawings by the children) and video creation: Alexandre Magnin. Narration and voices: Vincent Tong. Music: "Morning stroll" by Josh Kirsch and "Sing Swing Bada Bing" by Doug Maxwell / Media Rights Productions ** Hey kids! Did you hear about the grade three class who partnered with Ecoman to beat the dreaded Dump It Man to make a better world? Check it out! It all started out as a normal day, but when the children arrived at school, the playground was filled with garbage, and on top of it stood the dreaded Dump It Man. Horrors! What to do?? The class had been studying how to be green, so they knew to call their friend Ecoman. Ecoman was busy protecting the Amazonian rainforest, but he was able to arrive in just a few seconds – thanks to his renewable energy jetpack. “Hey Ecoman!” cried the class. “ What’s going on here??” Ecoman looked around. “Ah!” he said. “Someone has been duped into dumping! If we don’t want the whole world to look like this, we have to recycle. Luckily, we have a system to do this: different waste goes into different bins. One for glass, one for plastic, one for cardboard and newspapers and one for everything else. If we do this, then glass can be melted and made into new glass; paper can be recycled, and plastic turned into hangers, bottles or even a new sweater!” “Thanks, Ecoman!” the class shouted. Later that day, the class sat down to have lunch and found pale, tasteless tomatoes on their plates. “BLECH!” They could see the dreaded Dump It Man sneering in the corner, so they called Ecoman again who was busy protecting endangered animals. “Hey Ecoman! What’s going on???” Ecoman explained that the Earth gives us fruits and vegetables all year round but different ones grow in different seasons. For example, rhubarb comes in the spring, tomatoes in the summer, pumpkins in the fall, and in the winter we get carrots. And when we respect natural cycles, Nature helps us, for example by giving us ladybugs, who eat the aphids who would otherwise eat our plants. “Yay, Nature!” At the end of this strange day, the children left school, only to see tons of pollution in the city. Dump It Man was there too – laughing. Ecoman was able to leave his work installing solar panels that brought electricity to a village without lights and arrive to answer the children’s question. “Ecoman!” the class shouted. “Why is the air so grey and smelly? Can’t we do without these polluting cars??” “Absolutely!” said Ecoman. “This is already happening. Lots of people are riding bikes to work, or travelling by public transport or carpool. You can help by doing this too. Also, new, non-polluting options are being invented everyday – things like electric cars and solar planes like the Solar Impulse that flew around the world using only energy from the sun. So you see, when we work together to be green, Dump It Man is outta here!!” Ecoman then left with his awesome renewable energy jet pack to save the bees! What a day for that class!! And who knows…maybe tomorrow it will be YOUR CLASS!!!

So I’d like to urge you to visit Norway in a sustainable way i.e. visit lesser known destinations, reduce the amount of plastic you use, think about the impact you leave on the country, support local businesses and respect the country’s nature! If you’d like to read more about the topic, here are the 2 article of my blog that I spoke about: Norway in summer: Where to go to avoid the crowds = https://www.snowintromso.com/blog/2018/07/where-to-avoid-norways-summer-crowds Animal Tourism in the Arctic - What you need to consider before booking that trip = https://www.snowintromso.com/blog/2018/03/arctic-animal-tourism DON'T FORGET TO SUBSCRIBE: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCRX6JjBTzI08mm4hEOLfDTw?sub_confirmation=1 PS: Here are the news articles that I quoted throughout the video: https://www.treehugger.com/travel/norway-wants-tourists-slow-down-and-travel-more-sustainably.html https://www.heartmybackpack.com/norway/off-the-beaten-path/ https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016/09/16/norway-stops-promoting-tourism-as-it-is-overwhelmed-thanks-to-fr/ https://www.thelocal.no/20161018/norway-hikers-groups-calls-for-limits-to-tourism https://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/aug/03/norways-lofoten-islands-risk-being-overrun-by-tourists https://www.telegraph.co.uk/travel/destinations/europe/norway/articles/lofoten-islands-threatened-by-tourism-locals-warn/ http://www.newsinenglish.no/2017/07/17/lofoten-soiled-by-tourists-garbage/ As I said, feel free to leave a comment telling me about your favourite off-the-beaten-path destinations in Norway and let me know what kinds of videos you’d like to see in the future!

HRH Princess Dana Firas talks about cultural heritage as an integral building block of the sustainable development goals. She describes the impact of the cultural education and awareness program that she developed with her team at the Petra National Trust among school age children and youth in Petra specifically, and in Jordan. She speaks of how her experience has shown the links between cultural heritage awareness and improvements in overall educational outcomes, including creativity, innovation and social cohesion. Princess Dana speaks of her efforts as a global advocate and a UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador for Cultural Heritage to instill a sense of identity that is inclusive and rooted in thousands of years of global connection and shared human values. HRH Princess Dana Firas is a global advocate for heritage protection and preservation as a foundation for development, responsible tourism, political identity and participation. Princess Dana was designated a UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador in June 2017 by UNESCO Director-General Irina Bokova in recognition of her outstanding commitment to heritage protection and preservation as pillars for sustainable development, and her contribution to responsible tourism and community participation. Her advocacy for the cause of cultural heritage preservation and awareness resulted in their inclusion in two World Tourism Organization declarations. Her Royal Highness currently serves as President of the Petra National Trust (PNT), Jordan’s oldest national nongovernmental organization in the field of heritage protection and preservation. Established in 1989, PNT advocates for the preservation of cultural heritage in Jordan and internationally, and seeks to protect and preserve the natural, cultural and socio-economic heritage of Jordan’s heritage sites, with particular emphasis on the ancient Nabataean city in southern Jordan and its surrounding region. Since 2008, She has chaired the Board of the Petra National Foundation (PNF), a US-based 501-c3 organization working to promote awareness of the world heritage values of Petra and to support projects and programs that protect and preserve the site. Since the early 1990s, Princess Dana has worked to promote cultural heritage preservation, education and sustainable development in various capacities in the three sectors: private, public and civil society, both in Jordan and in the United States. She worked in the office of HM Queen Noor on projects that promote sustainable development, peace and human rights. She participated in the establishment of a number of non-governmental organizations, locally and internationally, to promote heritage preservation and environmental protection. In 2016 she joined the Board of the Fulbright Commission in Jordan. She also serves as a founding member of the board of the Mohammad and Mahira Abu Ghazaleh Foundation (2016) and Patron of Manar Al Athar at Oxford University (2017). In 2003, Princess Dana co-authored an article entitled “From the Environment and Human Security to Sustainable Security and Development” in the Journal of Human Development. In 2006, she authored an article for the 2007 State of the World Report and participated in the launch of the report in Washington DC. In 2012, she contributed to a publication entitled “Tourism and Archeological Heritage Management at Petra: Driver to Development or Destruction.” The International Institute for Peace Through Tourism recognized Princess Dana as a Global Ambassador of Peace in London in November 2017, and in March of the same year she won the Arab Heritage Person Award for 2018, the first woman and the first Jordanian to be selected for this award. Her Royal Highness holds a BA degree from Boston University in economics and international relations. She also holds an MSc in Development Studies from the London School of Economics and Political Science and an MPA from Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government focused on sustainable development and environmental policy, where she was a Fulbright Scholar. She is married to HRH Prince Firas bin Raad and has two daughters, Safa (born 2001) and Haya (born 2003), and one son, Hashem (born 2010). This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx

India's southern state of Kerala was one of the country's top tourist attractions until the worst rains in a century caused widespread devastation last year and scared away visitors. The region of charming coastal plains and low lying mountains is racing to rebuild a tourism sector that contributes nearly 10 percent to its economy. But environmentalists are urging more sustainable development. Anjana Pasricha reports from Kerala.

What is DESTINATION MANAGEMENT? What does DESTINATION MANAGEMENT mean? DESTINATION MANAGEMENT meaning - DESTINATION MANAGEMENT definition - DESTINATION MANAGEMENT explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ A destination management company (DMC) is a professional services company with local knowledge, expertise and resources, working in the design and implementation of events, activities, tours, transportation and program logistics. There are very few destination management organizations. Management implies control, and rarely does a tourism organisation have control over the destination's resources, such as in the case of the New Zealand government's development of the resort town of Rotorua in the first half of the 20th Century. The majority of these entities are regarded as destination marketing organizations See A DMC provides a ground service based on local knowledge of their given destinations. These services can be transportation, hotel accommodation, restaurants, activities, excursions, conference venues, themed events, gala dinners and logistics, meetings, incentive schemes as well as helping with overcoming language barriers. By acting as purchasing consortia, DMCs can provide preferential rates based on the buying power they have with their preferred suppliers.

I made this slide show for a 2016 postgraduate class at Massey University New Zealand on the origins of policies regarding sustainable development. I feel it is important not only to outline the roots of today’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), but also to ask to what extent most of our policies for sustainable development are connected to a much older story in our Western, Christian, culture; the story of the apocalypse that is not only inevitable, but according some public voices is also just around the corner. In this light, I think that grass roots initiatives to build localised economies, explore the meaning of ‘degrowth’, or invest in food sovereignty may challenge much more than just the neo-liberal articles of faith.

Link: http://youtu.be/Gor1H1T_JYU Slides #1: Introduction to Demystifying Tourism - Hi, my name is Dr. Stan McGahey. Welcome to my series of videos. They will attempt to “Demystify Tourism” as I explain many of the basic concepts of the tourism industry in short, 3-5 minute videos. Some of the topics are listed on the next couple of slides. The content of these videos is based on my experiences as a professor, consultant, writer, manager, and tourist in over 80 countries on 6 continents. Slide #2: Demystifying Tourism Videos (1) - Topics of the first few videos are the Tourism Model, Golden Rule of Tourism, Tourism Stakeholders Triangle, Four Operational Sectors of Tourism, Transportation, Attractions, Accommodations, Food & Beverage, Three Impacts of Tourism, Three Types of Tourists, Tourism Destinations, and Three Tourism Carrying Capacities. Slide #3: Demystifying Tourism Videos (2) - Topics of additional videos are Tourism Values, Philosophy, and Vision; Tourism Organizations & Associations; Special Interest Tourism; Evaluating Inbound Tourism Numbers; Tourism Policy; Tourism Planning; Tourism Development; Tourism Promotion; Tourism Distribution; Careers in Tourism; and many, many more! Slide #4: Purpose of Videos - Why the need to demystify tourism? Because it’s the world’s largest industry, and it grows everywhere, whether it’s well planned and managed, or not. Tourism’s components are simple, but as a system, it’s quite complex. Often, people in decision-making positions, and people who are impacted by those decisions, know little about the tourism industry. But they should! Slide #5: Orientation of Videos - These videos are designed to help anyone who is curious about how the tourism industry works grasp its basic concepts quicker and easier, so they are industry-oriented, rather than consumer-oriented. But I think they will also help individual travelers gain valuable insights into the industry they use. Of course, I hope they will also be helpful to tourism educators, trainers, and students. Slide #6: Thank You! - During my long and interesting career, I’ve learned a few things about the tourism industry, and this is my opportunity to share them with you. So, I hope you will find these videos both enjoyable and useful, as they attempt to demystify tourism. Now I invite you to watch Video #2: The Tourism Model. I await your comments. Thank you! My Professional Background and Goals My doctor’s degree is in International Tourism from Hanyang University in Seoul, Korea, and I have developed and taught many courses in international tourism, both in the classroom and online, for more than 25 years at universities in Asia, the Pacific, Eastern and Western Europe, and the United States. I have also written several books on various aspects of the tourism industry; plus hundreds of articles for tourism trade publications and academic conferences and journals, and I have created and co-hosted two radio programs on the tourism industry. My professional experiences within the tourism industry range from tour operations and destination management to hotel promotions and tourism journalism. I have also served as an international tourism consultant on projects for U.N. organizations, government agencies, NGOs, and tourism businesses and associations in places such as Korea, China, Guam, Macedonia, Indonesia, Iraq, and the United States. Since 2004, I’ve served as a member of the UNWTO Panel of Tourism Experts. I have worked in tourism my entire adult life, except for military duty, because I love traveling abroad and experiencing different cultures and places, and when I’m not traveling, I want to help others see the world. I also believe that along with the joy of traveling comes the responsibility of being good travelers; those who not only get the most out of their travels, but also leave the most positive impacts on the people and places they visit. From these experiences, I’ve developed my own professional philosophy and goals. Trying to boil down your professional goals into one compact, logical sentence isn’t easy. But here’s mine. I would like to: “contribute to the strengthening of communities and nations through the development, management, operation, and promotion of responsible tourism for the purpose of enhancing economic well-being, environmental sustainability, cultural enrichment, social harmony, and international peace.” I take my work in tourism seriously, because it has enormous power to make the world a better place, or a worse place, in which to live. As such, I divide everyone in the world into two groups: there’s tourism people and there’s everybody else. Tourism people get it and do the right thing. I hope this series of videos, and the Tourism Model that goes with it, helps you not only demystify tourism, but also helps you become a tourism person.

What is SUSTAINABLE TRANSPORT? What does SUSTAINABLE TRANSPORT mean? SUSTAINABLE TRANSPORT meaning - SUSTAINABLE TRANSPORT definition - SUSTAINABLE TRANSPORT explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Sustainable transport refers to the broad subject of transport that is sustainable in the senses of social, environmental and climate impacts and the ability to, in the global scope, supply the source energy indefinitely. Components for evaluating sustainability include the particular vehicles used for road, water or air transport; the source of energy; and the infrastructure used to accommodate the transport (roads, railways, airways, waterways, canals and terminals). Another component for evaluation is pipelines for transporting liquid or gas materials. Transport operations and logistics as well as transit-oriented development are also involved in evaluation. Transportation sustainability is largely being measured by transportation system effectiveness and efficiency as well as the environmental and climate impacts of the system. Short-term activity often promotes incremental improvement in fuel efficiency and vehicle emissions controls while long-term goals include migrating transportation from fossil-based energy to other alternatives such as renewable energy and use of other renewable resources. The entire life cycle of transport systems is subject to sustainability measurement and optimization. Sustainable transport systems make a positive contribution to the environmental, social and economic sustainability of the communities they serve. Transport systems exist to provide social and economic connections, and people quickly take up the opportunities offered by increased mobility, with poor households benefiting greatly from low carbon transport options. The advantages of increased mobility need to be weighed against the environmental, social and economic costs that transport systems pose. Transport systems have significant impacts on the environment, accounting for between 20% and 25% of world energy consumption and carbon dioxide emissions. The majority of the emissions, almost 97%, came from direct burning of fossil fuels. Greenhouse gas emissions from transport are increasing at a faster rate than any other energy using sector. Road transport is also a major contributor to local air pollution and smog. The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) estimates that each year 2.4 million premature deaths from outdoor air pollution could be avoided. Particularly hazardous for health are emissions of black carbon, a component of particulate matter, which is a known cause of respiratory and carcinogenic diseases and a significant contributor to global climate change. The links between greenhouse gas emissions and particulate matter make low carbon transport an increasingly sustainable investment at local level—both by reducing emission levels and thus mitigating climate change; and by improving public health through better air quality. The social costs of transport include road crashes, air pollution, physical inactivity, time taken away from the family while commuting and vulnerability to fuel price increases. Many of these negative impacts fall disproportionately on those social groups who are also least likely to own and drive cars. Traffic congestion imposes economic costs by wasting people's time and by slowing the delivery of goods and services. Traditional transport planning aims to improve mobility, especially for vehicles, and may fail to adequately consider wider impacts. But the real purpose of transport is access - to work, education, goods and services, friends and family - and there are proven techniques to improve access while simultaneously reducing environmental and social impacts, and managing traffic congestion. Communities which are successfully improving the sustainability of their transport networks are doing so as part of a wider programme of creating more vibrant, livable, sustainable cities.
