WEBINAR – Confronting the “Invisible Burden” of Tourism
Hosted by Sustainable Tourism Asset Management Program (STAMP), Center for Sustainable Global Enterprise, Cornell University.

Since it was published in March, "Destinations at Risk: The Invisible Burden of Tourism" has been widely welcomed by industry leaders and destinations. (Download the report for free at www.invisibleburden.org)

Time: Jun 25, 2019 9:00-10:00 AM (one hour) in Eastern Time (US and Canada)

Skift says: “it shows just how big of an unintended impact tourism can have.”

The report describes how destinations must uncover and account for tourism’s hidden costs, referred to as the “invisible burden”, to protect and manage vital destination assets worldwide. Failing to do so puts ecosystems, cultural wonders, and community life at increasing risk, and places the tourism industry on a weak foundation that could crack under its own weight.

The report calls for more resources for destination managers, holistic destination accounting and revised tourism policies worldwide.

In this webinar, the report authors will present their research findings and explain their conclusions, and destination managers will discuss these within their own contexts.
