Sustainable Development Goals - Academic collaboration with the tourism industry and local communities
Sustainable tourism is defined as being tourism that considers the current and future impacts in meeting the needs of stakeholders such as visitors, industry, the environment and communities. The new Sustainable Development Goals developed by the UNWTO aim to encourage a more sustainable tourism sector by aligning the policies, operations and funding across the stakeholders. This seminar will consider the issue of how collaborative projects between academic institutions, local communities and the tourism industry can support this development within and across destinations. Two examples of government funded projects that brought together these stakeholders will be used to highlight the key challenges and opportunities in achieving more sustainable tourism development in destinations.
