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."

Sustainable tourism is the concept of visiting a place as a tourist and trying to make only a positive impact on the environment, society and economy.

It can be related to travel for leisure, business and what is called VFR (visiting friends and relatives).

What does ECOTOURISM mean? 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.

What is HERITAGE TOURISM? What does HERITAGE TOURISM mean? HERITAGE TOURISM meaning - HERITAGE TOURISM definition - HERITAGE TOURISM explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Cultural heritage tourism (or just heritage tourism or diaspora tourism) is a branch of tourism oriented towards the cultural heritage of the location where tourism is occurring. The National Trust for Historic Preservation in the United States defines heritage tourism as "traveling to experience the places, artifacts and activities that authentically represent the stories and people of the past," and "heritage tourism can include cultural, historic and natural resources." Decolonization and immigration form the major background of much contemporary heritage tourism. Falling travel costs have also made heritage tourism possible for more people. Another possible form involves religious travel or pilgrimages. Many Catholics from around the world come to the Vatican and other sites such as Lourdes or Fátima. Islam commands its followers to take the hajj to Mecca, thus differentiating it somewhat from tourism in the usual sense, though the trip can also be a culturally important event for the pilgrim. Heritage tourism can also be attributed to historical events that have been dramatised to make them more entertaining. For example, a historical tour of a town or city using a theme such as ghosts or Vikings. Heritage tourism focuses on certain historical events, rather than presenting a balanced view of that historical period. Its aim may not always be the presentation of accurate historical facts, as opposed to economically developing the site and surrounding area. As a result, heritage tourism can be seen as a blend of education, entertainment, preservation and profit. Anthropology and Ethnology were two major disciplines interested by the life of aborigines, their customs and political structures. Although, the firsts fieldworkers were not interested in expanding the colonization of main European powers, the fact was that their notes, books and field-work notes were employed by colonial officials to understand the aboriginal mind. From that moment on, anthropology developed a strange fascination for the Other's culture. The concepts of heritage and colonization were inextricably intertwined. Maximiliano Korstanje argues that literature played a vital role in configuring the image of Others in the western imaginary, and this was the rub, aborigines internalized the Western stereotypes about their cultures. In the threshold of history, the meaning of heritage and patrimony accompanied the interests of European elite and their attachment to colonial order. The concept of heritage tourism has been recently criticized by some Latin American anthropologists. These radical voices focus on the ideological discourse that marks some human groups, or ethnicities within heritage tourism while others are excluded. White-elite expands its hegemony by marking Others as different at the time it remains unmarked as normal. Tourism is based on the quest (exploitation) for otherness. By re-considering what is and not heritage tourism consists in an ideological mechanism of discipline exerted by modern nation-states over aboriginal groups. Another problem with heritage tourism is the effect on indigenous peoples whose land and culture is being visited by tourists. If the indigenous people are not a part of the majority, or ruling power in the country, they may not benefit from the tourism as greatly as they should. For example, in Mexico tourism has increased because of the predicted end of the Maya Calendar. However, the indigenous Maya are not benefitting from the increased traffic through the ruins and other cultural landmarks.

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.

Twitter: http://twitter.com/Sustain_Illustr Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/sustainabilityillustrated Videos are created by Alexandre Magnin using years of experience drawing and working as a sustainability consultant with businesses and communities: http://www.amcreative.org ** This video was created with a group of grade 3 kids (8-9 years old) from Saint Michel de Picpus (Paris) to explain sustainable development to other children. 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!!!

Full Article: http://bit.ly/Green_Hospitality Eco Hotels: http://bit.ly/EcoHotelsUKplc Invest in India: http://bit.ly/InvestmentRRAM The World Travel and Tourism Council predicted this month that within the next decade India will be the fourth largest tourism economy worldwide, snapping at the heels of China, the United States and Germany. The Report makes a particularly interesting finding that this trend is not just driven by increasing numbers of international business and tourist travelers: significant growth is being driven from within the subcontinent itself, fueled by India’s rapidly expanding middle class and an increasingly technology literate young population who are quicker than ever to reach for their smartphones to book a holiday. Domestic travel is now the real catalyst for change in a burgeoning hospitality sector with a striking 90% of travelers being Indian Nationals. No surprise then that In May of this year domestic airlines on the subcontinent reported a 16.53% growth in passenger numbers compared to the same month in 2017, with the Directorate General of Civil Aviation confirming that Indian carriers had transited no less than 11.9 million passengers during that single month. Across the board scheduled carriers flew to an impressive 80% occupancy with Spicejet leading the way at a 94.8% load factor. These are hugely significant trends for the future of India’s economy, with the hospitality sector having already accounted for more than $230 Billion of the subcontinent’s GDP in 2017 (up from $209 Billion the previous year) and no suggestion that current unprecedented rates of growth in the sector are likely to slow anytime soon. This pattern of exponential growth shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone: India has 36 world heritage sites, 103 National Parks (with the Taj Mahal thrown in for good measure) as well as Goa’s beaches, the foothills of the Himalayas and an astonishing breadth of wildlife from tigers and elephants to snow leopards. All of that is bound to attract tourists in large numbers, but such rapid tourist growth can of course bring its own problems, as anyone struggling through St Mark’s Square in mid August can testify. Growth of the wrong kind can threaten the fragile ecostructure of the very locations proving to be so popular with tourists, to such an extent that some of India’s tiger reserves no longer have any tigers to see. More than 30,000 plastic bottles are left behind each summer by tourists in the high altitude Himalayan Ladakh desert of Jammu and Kashmir and on Mount Everest itself eight to ten tons of waste are left behind on the mountain every year: everything from empty oxygen bottles to rucksacks, tents and discarded climbing equipment. So there is a balance to be struck: recognising the importance the hospitality sector now has for the subcontinent’s economy, but at the same time striving to support unprecedented growth within the sector in a manner that is sensitive to the needs of India’s precious ecosystem. This is the principal reason for the success of Eco Hospitality as a key driver of India’s mid market hospitality sector: not just because it is the only model striving to get this critical balance right, but because the majority of those travelling on the subcontinent now recognise the risks greater tourist numbers are posing to the natural habitat and are actively seeking out accommodation that supports its preservation. Red Ribbon Asset Management is the founder of Eco Hotels, the world’s first carbon neutral mid market hotel brand, offering “green hospitality” as part of a progressive roll out across India which is intended to take full advantage of current market opportunities on the subcontinent. The brand offers sustainable living without compromising on standards of hospitality and is designed to cater to commercial and recreational travelers alike.

Please visit Norway - in a sustainable way! *Open the description box for more infos* After my first full summer in Stavanger, working as a tour guide in the city, I can’t help myself feeling shocked by the amount of people hiking Pulpit Rock and Co. in the summer. I honestly don’t quite understand why anyone would want to stay in line for a picture when there’s an entire country to explore that offers SO MUCH wilderness and SO MANY hidden gems! 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!

Times Higher Education is set to launch the world’s first university impact ranking. The initiative – the first global attempt to document evidence of higher education impact – is designed to capture unique new insights on universities’ work towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Universities contribute a huge amount to society, and this data can offer a new perspective on how they’re addressing some of the most pressing global issues. This work has never been fully explored in the past, and has never been recognised in global rankings. The need and desire for clear, new metrics on impact is strong, and while this is a highly challenging area of data collection, it’s also an important and necessary step forward. Version 1 is not going to be perfect nor will it capture all the impact that is occurring. It will also remain subject to ongoing consultative discussion as we expect it to develop over time. This is why your opinions and insights on our work are valuable. So we are listening and open to discussing suggestions, concerns and ideas.

Uganda Africa. Home to an incredible array of wildlife and biodiversity. Tourism and development are growing in the country so it is imperative that local communities are engaged and educated about how to live in harmony with the incredible nature that surrounds them. Uganda’s youth forms a biggest constituency for biodiversity threat. With 78% of the total population aged below 30 and 94% living below the poverty line it is critical that they get engaged and involved, especially those who live near National Parks. Which is why the Uganda Youth Conservation Scouts was formed to ensure that youth become lifelong stewards, leaders, protectors and conservationist of Uganda’s environment. Soulful Concepts is giving you the opportunity to participate in a responsible travel experience supporting the work of Uganda Youth Conservation Scouts whilst at the same time enjoying everything Uganda has to offer!

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

Both UNESCO Chairs of University of Genoa and of USI - Università della Svizzera italiana have organised a series of conferences in Lugano and Milan with the aim to promote the preservation and sustainable tourism of the Machu Picchu Historic Sanctuary. The second conference is dedicated to the history, the future and the development of sustainable tourism of this unique monument of the Amazon Andies. Special guest will be the renowned anthropologist Fernando Astete, in conversation with architect and anthropologist Adine Gavazzi (UNESCO Chair for University of Genoa) and USI Pro-rector and digital communication expert Lorenzo Cantoni. Fernando Astete is considered “the guardian of Machu Picchu”, for his commitment and for the authority recognised to him by the scientifi c world and the local communities. Astete is the author of several articles on the meaning, the construction process and, functions of the monument, and the region’s environment. Among several honours, he has been awarded in 2018 with the “Americanista Distinto” by the 56th International Congress of Americanists. A new species of orchids that was recently discovered in the Machu Picchu Sanctuary was named in his honour.For more than 30 years Fernando Astete has devoted his life to the preservation, conservation and research of the Machu Picchu Historic Sanctuary. He explored and mapped its more than 37,000 hectares, discovering roads, buildings and settlements along with various archaeological sites in the area. Since 1994, Astete has been director of the Park, carrying out his work together with a large interdisciplinary and international group of scientists, researchers and professionals.

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.
