The Reset Tourism Webinar Series: Tourism is at a crossroads. This webinar series focuses one the three things the tourism industry must focus on in order to move past business as usual and toward a more resilient, regenerative, equitable, and sustainable tourism economy.

Destination Stewardship and Stakeholder Engagement: The first in the series, the Center for Responsible Travel (CREST) and the Destination Stewardship Center (DSC) discuss innovative forms of governance and collaboration that will enable a more holistic approach to tourism management and development, and bring new skills, resources, and levers for change, to develop resiliency, community contentment, and each destination’s unique intrinsic appeal.

 

Measuring Tourism’s Impacts and Success: We will discuss new, simple, measures of success that go beyond visitor numbers and overall spend, recognising the true value of tourism - both its costs and benefits – and understanding how it will contribute to a destination’s health and community wellbeing.

 

Local and Sustainable Supply Chains: We will discuss local entrepreneurship and product innovation to boost employment and increase the amount of locally owned businesses in the tourism supply chain, to create authentic, positive, low-impact experiences, and to transition to a low-carbon, circular economy.
