UNWTO supported conference devoted to Responsible Tourism

This paper was delivered to tourism academics and professionals during the World Responsible Tourism Day seminars in London November 2014. My presentation commences at 41:30 minutes.

Examples of Aboriginal and early White Settler intangible cultural heritage are used to demonstrate tourism’s contribution in helping community resilience through conservation of stories, festivals and folklore. Details provide evidence of heritage's economic contribution to communities and the important role Legacy Tourists play in conservation and local economic development.
