Tourism is on a huge global growth trajectory, and does not appear to be stopping. Fuelled by Instagram envy posting from all parts of the world (leading to overtourism), cheap flights, and an ever-growing thirst for travel, tourism (if it were a country) has the 5th largest carbon footprint compared to nation states.
The doughnut offers a way for tourism operators, communities, and destinations to assess and evaluate business operations, resilience, and business strategies to demonstrate how to live within the doughnut. Tourism, as an economic driver, then contributes to an integrated way of thriving below the ecological ceiling, and minimizing overshoots and supporting social foundations.
This topic is meant to provide space to share ideas, tactics, strategies for tourism that thrives within the doughnut. Illustrations, graphs, ideas, case studies, examples, stories all welcomed.
