Discover how destinations are enabling change by managing the invisible burden of tourism. Has tourism become a burden on local communities?

As an industry, it's time for us to look at the bigger picture. Now, more than ever, destinations are seeking to take a different approach to address the overall impact of tourism on communities and the environment. By addressing the invisible burden, tourism can become a global force for good, benefiting locals and the visitor economy. In this talk, learn how Travel Foundation created projects with a 'shared agenda' for destinations to understand the impact of tourism on communities and to strategise how they move forward towards a new and better model.
