What is the meaning of sustainable tourism?
Sustainable tourism focuses on the preservation of nature, culture and human rights. Areas that are touristy see pollution and loss of culture increasing. Travelers no longer want to cause any harmful consequences when they are on vacation, which is why sustainable tourism is becoming a growing trend.
What are the trends and developments surrounding sustainable tourism?
More and more travel organizations, hotels, airlines and other companies in the travel sector are committed to sustainable tourism. In addition, travelers find it increasingly important to have a purpose on vacation: they want to participate or help, do volunteer work in orphanages or in animal rescue centers.
Holidays in your own country are becoming increasingly popular, but also trips to unknown destinations. Tourist areas are fled to stay ‘under the radar’. Camping no longer has a dusty image and hotels make way for stays with locals. And finally there is the working nomad revolution : the digital nomads, which ‘unleash’ and for whom the world is their workplace.
