16:45pm Final comments
Michael Hall – 26:00 People, people, people, 32:00 Efficiency and sufficiency, 36:00 What difference does most sustainable tourism research have? Very little … How sustainable is sustainable behaviour?
Willem Coetzee @WillemJLCoetzee When they measured …
The Sustainable Development Goals, ratified at the United Nations in 2015 and set to guide global development through to 2030, urge governments, industry and communities alike to engage in direct efforts to work in more socially, economically and environmentally sustainable ways. As one of the world’s largest industries, tourism should address sustainability issues head on. There is certainly a great deal of rhetoric on the virtues and promise of tourism as a tool for sustainable development, and there have been positive steps towards sustainability by many companies, governments and others. However, it is also claimed that the tourism industry has oversold its sustainable potential: “Tourism hides its unsustainability behind a mask that is all the more beguiling because it appears so sustainable. We too easily imagine that tourism as the embodiment of sustainability, when in reality it may represent unrealized hopes and desires for the world we want to live in, the environments we want to inhabit, and economy we want to participate in” (Hollenhorst et al. 2014: 306).
This conference on Tourism and the SDGs offers the opportunity for a wide range of scholars and tourism stakeholders to discuss and debate both (i) challenges to tourism contributing to the SDGs, and (ii) ways in which tourism can deliver on its potential to be more inclusive, equitable and sustainable, in line with the values embedded in the Global Goals.
The Tourism4SDGs19 Organising Committee now invites researchers, practitioners, and others to submit research and position papers in the following streams:
- Stream 1: People
- Stream 2: Prosperity
- Stream 3: Planet
- Stream 4: Peace & Partnerships
- Stream 5: Cross-Cutting SDGs
- Stream 6: Tourism Education/Pedagogy
We dream of escaping to the perfect location. Somewhere quiet, beautiful and unspoilt. The world’s first Tourism and Sustainable Development Goals conference (Jan 24-25) explores ideas for better managing tourism for people and planet. https://t.co/QJjI1kKHfl pic.twitter.com/cMWOxERx39

Tourism develops unevenly, and the challenges in urban vs rural areas differ. Energy poverty in remote areas is one key issue. How can tourism help? @GHE_Connect #Tourism4SDGS19 pic.twitter.com/H1egp6tKAO

Travellers often go somewhere “exotic” for a new experience only to demand the same food experiences they could have every day at home. Gabriel Laeis shows the amount of imported goods (light blue) vs local production (dark blue) in one Fiji resort. #Tourism4SDGS19 pic.twitter.com/OBP12aCKSy
