Environmental Science Seminar Series – Sustainability transitions and tourism – TRU Newsroom
Speaker: Dr. Patrick Brouder, TRU Tourism
‘Sustainability Transitions’ are the shifts that societies and economies need to undergo to address contemporary environmental challenges.
Sustainability transitions require significant changes in governance systems, institutional frameworks, policy-making procedures and consumer behaviour.
Despite the need for sustainability transitions in the sector, tourism has seen limited advancement in this area.
With COVID-19 bringing tourism to a virtual standstill and thereby offering a chance for a reset, is there hope for a transformation of tourism in the years ahead?
