In my last post on sharing your travel secrets, I promised you more news to follow from the world of responsibletravel.com.
And here it is! Hot off the press, Geographical magazine in a joint effort with responsibletravel.com has put together an insightful and thought-provoking special edition looking at the future of tourism.
As Justin Francis, managing director of responsibletravel.com says:
“I approached Geographical magazine earlier this year with the idea of producing dedicated editorial on the sustainable future of travel and tourism. I wanted to start a positive and forward thinking debate around the future of our industry. Geographical’s Publisher Graeme Gourlay and Editor Geordie Torr were inspired to dedicate their entire December 2008 issue to the topic.”
So how will we be travelling in 2020? Will we be travelling more locally, closer-to-home? Will increasing fuel prices have pushed us off the planes?
How about hotels? An eco architect expert talks about the latest innovations to create an environmentally-friendly hotel – even down to your hotel bill. “Didn’t use any heating madam? We’ll take that off your bill!”
responsibletravel.com wants to get your thoughts on where tourism is heading – do you even think it has a future? And if you do, how do you think it can be sustainable?
