TOURISM IN A FINITE, CLIMATE-CHALLENGED WORLD
Part I of this Horizon Paper paper reminds us that Earth is finite; that there are limits to growth; that climate change is an existential threat; and that denial is dangerous.
Part II addresses the problem of defining terms such as ‘sustainability’ and ‘climate resilience’ in the context of interlocking crises.
Part III examines limits to growth and planetary impacts, focusing on Kate Raworth’s ‘doughnut economics’, or seven ways of rethinking economics for the 21st century.
Part IV considers the implications for travel & tourism of inadequate action in an emerging new climate-constrained world.
