To be efficient and sustainable, tourism, and events must strike a balance between the short-term economic interests and the long-term wellbeing of the local environment and community. Sustainable tourism and events have gained the status of a top priority in the government’s strategy and are gaining a great deal of interest in the international science and political debate. This book introduces the key ideas of sustainable tourism, a modern type of tourism promoted by the government, environmental, and social organizations and international organizations. The book also sheds light on sustainable tourism in different geographical environment settings. Presenting a wealth of information and guidance on managing sustainable tourism, events, and meetings, this book is intended to help educators, students, entrepreneurs, strategic planners, and policymakers.
