An industry perspective

Measuring your answers against those of an industry expert.

In the video, Jane Ashton, Director of Sustainability at TUI Group gives her perspective on the impacts the tourism industy can and does have around the world.

She also talks about how those impacts are being mitigated through initiatives like ‘Travelife’ but is it enough?

This week we have reviewed both the negative and positive impacts of tourism but do the impacts balance out and is that sufficient, or should we be aiming to mitigate all the negatives of tourism?

What do you think the solution is?

Your task

Select one negative impact of tourism and suggest how it can be solved, ideally by looking at cases where it happened – for example, environmental degradation in a certain destination that became a wildlife sanctuary. You should find plenty of online reports, news articles and videos to help you.
