Responsible Tourism: Using tourism for sustainable development 2nd edition is about the globally vital necessity of realising sustainable tourism. It is a hugely important challenge to those who organise and sell travel and tourism, and those who consume it.
Now in its second edition, it has been fully revised and updated and includes new material to explore the following key issues: resilience, voluntourism, child protection, the challenge of disintermediation, tourism and the UN Sustainable Development Goals, slum tourism, shared value and animal welfare.
This powerful new handbook is the most authoritative contemporary overview of the key issues that are critical for the progress of responsible tourism and is written by one of the leading thinkers and change-makers in the field. It applies the broader concept of responsibility to travel and tourism, and looks at how it relates to sustainable business and the business case for responsibility.
This text is for managers and professionals at all levels in the tourism business. It will also be essential for policy makers and others responsible for strategic thinking in the wide range of sectors that relate to travel and tourism, and it should be read by all serious students of tourism who need to understand where the industry they may want to join must go in the future.
