Video documentation on community resilience and tourism
The Transforming Tourism Initiative conducted an online-seminar on “Community Resilience and Change in Tourism”. With inspiring contributions, alternative tourism models for more resilience against disasters and catastrophes, especially in times of Covid-19 were discussed. In addition, insights in community based tourism initiatives, as well as social tourism practices were given which tend to be out of sight in the general tourism discourse.
Resilience is the new buzz word. It is more than just returning to the old tourism models - which were neither sustainable nor resilient - but to learn from the crises to be better prepared for the next one.
