NETTRA 2021 Roundtable - Sustainability for Tourism Industry - Shared screen with speaker view
Who can see your viewing activity?
I need Seleni to balance my negativity :)
Arizona taking some great steps. Colorado as well.
Springdale, UT (Zion NP) is another example of community involvement helping to shape the park-town relationship
Absolutely - but the issue has been forced by the huge visitation increases. I hope better planning (and shared values!) can circumvent the challenges before they reach crisis stage.
I think talking more openly about tourism's costs can help destinations and stakeholders develop more sustainable strategies.
Donny - I know things are new, but is there anything potentially on tap with NPS and any new rail projects?
Excellent observation - the short-term'ism of finance and investing
and perhaps quantifying revenue opportunity from consumers who prioritize sustainability
If we do end up having time - It sounds like advocacy for sustainable tourism management starts from a local level - what are crucial steps we can take on an individual basis to advance these efforts on a larger level?
Thank you for a wonderful discussion! We kindly ask you to return to the main session whenever you are ready. https://psu.zoom.us/j/97694608567?pwd=cWp4RmRZNW1yZVQwZi9kVWw3OWJLdz09#success
Good points, Tara. Especially depends on the market. In VT, people love showing off their canvas tote bags and Pruises ;)
(Roni - good question, not that I know of, but I expect the Amtrak-NPS relationship will be maintained and hopefully strengthened)
Thank you, Donny and Seleni!
Jada yes! VT seems to have that natural care about nature and the environment which is wonderful
