Abstract

When we think of the tourism industry today, what comes to mind? Do we think about the positive effects of tourism, such as the creation of millions of jobs, and the generation of billions of dollars, or do we see its potential negative side as well? This presentation demonstrates some of the impacts tourism has on the environment, economics, society, and culture. There are things that many don’t realize about the tourism industry today. Most important of these are how you and I can impact the industry in a way that will benefit many. Are we going to stay with the old or can we, tourism professionals, learn how to evolve and change the tourism industry. You be the judge of that, but change will come when we act.
