Cultural tourism of the future will foster authenticity and learning experiences through small-scale, linked enterprise networks.
Join Dr. Susan Guyette, author of the new book Sustainable Cultural Tourism, for a seminar introducing a value-based planning and development method for cultural tourism from within the community. Through planning and sustainable practices, tourism can support earned livelihood, cultural retention, and resource protection.
Sustainability is possible through a worldview that respects cultural values and natural cycles, rather than a linear, profit-based economic perspective. Dr. Guyette's approach emphasizes a cyclical process of community-based evaluation and redirection, with indigenous methodology demonstrating the way forward.
