GEOTOURISM Source National Geographic
Geotourism is defined as tourism that sustains or enhances the distinctive geographical character of a place—its environment, heritage, aesthetics, culture, and the well-being of its residents.
Geotourism is …
- Environmentally responsible - committed to conserving resources and maintaining biodiversity
- Culturally responsible - committed to respecting local sensibilities and building on local heritage
- Synergistic - bringing together all elements of geographical character to create a travel experience that is richer than the sum of its parts and appealing to visitors with diverse interests
We will be hosting a b-side open Assembly discussion event on geotourism possibilities in Spring 2022. Watch this space for more info.
