Harold Goodwin - Leeds Metropolitan
(Wageningen Geography Lectures 2012-2013)
Tourism is one of the ways in which a place is experienced, by locals, domestic and international visitors alike. Since WWII it has become a mass phenomenon and the impacts are both extensive and deep. Drawing on the literature of sense of place, host guest relations and work on local economic development and governance I want to explore the role which tourism plays in the evolution of places. Responsible Tourism is about making better places for people to live in and better places to visit, in that order. I shall explore what this means in practice and conclude by suggesting the research agenda.
