What lies behind tourism’s failure to take extreme weather events seriously?

Extreme Weather Events - Tourism

We know risks from extreme weather events are increasing and that these threats can wreak business and put lives of residents and visitors in danger. Yet still tourism is not sufficiently prepared.

This new study examines in detail the attitudes and behaviour of a popular tourist region, its operators, community and local councils and finds a significant lack of preparedness.

Sustainable Tourism: How close are we getting, one business' nine year review

After efficiency must come significant behaviour change

Today Crystal Creek Meadows Luxury Cottages & Spa Resort completed its Responsible Tourism Report 2014-15 which compares the impact of nine years of monitoring. There has been progress, but there are also clear signs that easy early gains are followed by much more serious and challenging barriers to becoming a more sustainable tourism business. These barriers may only be resolved by behaviour change and major technological innovations.

Wildlife Tourism: Contributing to Social Change

A benefit of conservation is wildlife expereinces for tourists

Everyday life and the resulting Greenhouse Gas Emissions contribute to loss of wildlife habitat in high energy using developed economies. While the general public don’t wish to see the loss of animals, birds and marine life, they feel powerless to stop GHG pollution. They are also not sufficiently motivated to change their social practices. So what can tourism do to reverse the trend?
