An interesting article regarding #sustainabletourism and #buildingbacktourism.
I agree with the points reported, in particular, that we need a different way to measure the efficiency of the tourism sector. More quality, fewer numbers or quantity.Sara

Sustainable tourism definition: 3 common mistakes

For some years now, we have heard more and more about sustainable tourism. There are many hypotheses about the meaning of this concept, and many projects start with this justification. Do you want to know what we are talking about? I am going to present to you the three main common mistakes in the perception of sustainable tourism in Italy. TYPOLOGY VS APPROACH Typology vs approach means that very often sustainable tourism is considered a type of tourism, a kind of offer. Instead, I’m afraid that’s not right because unlike sports tourism, luxury tourism, wellness tourism and many others, sustainable tourism is a fundamental approach that applies through different strategies to any tourism. The definition of Sustainable tourism is as an approach to tourism that takes into account ecological sustainability, social sustainability and economic sustainability. SUSTAINABLE TOURISM = SOLIDARITY The second most common mistake, particularly in Italy, is to consider sustainable...

What can the tourism sector learn from COVID 19?

Sara-Vitali-May-2020

I doubted a lot whether to share this, my opinions related not to COVID 19 but to the insights that COVID has brought us. 

I consider sustainable a tourism that is collaborative with the local community, environmentally friendly, and tourism that is inclusive and accessible. A more collaborative approach to with the local community, for example, make it easier to develop a strategy that helps you in normal circumstances. When extraordinary circumstances, like COVID 19 happen, you have a group of people and businesses that can try to support each other. 

A more environmentally friendly approach in the business, first of all, is better because it is good with the environment where we live, healthier, safer, even more beautiful. Also, in the medium and long term is helping the business with a lower fix cost. 

Another way the sustainable approach to tourism would have helped is through more inclusive tourism. Here let me clarify what a mean with the word inclusive. I refer not only to people with some kind of disabilities (physical or mental) that for many reasons can find it challenging to have a proper experience, but also not to target just who is already our type of guests.
