The slideshow presentation addresses failure in many guises, including massive tree failure and online tourism promotion gone wrong in Mexico. Click through to access the YouTube video inside!
It’s not all negative. There are plenty of examples of collaboration done right. Behind the scenes the presentation has attracted more than 300 views in the first three days online, which I credit to a number of colleagues and friends drawing attention to it via Twitter and Facebook. Many, many thanks!
Space is available for 100 delegates at the conference venue and any number of virtual delegates via livestreaming video and Twitter. We already have a few participants registered from Mexico! Register to participate here.
The Responsible Tourism in Cities Conference seeks to bring together leaders in local government, sustainable tourism and social media, focusing on a practical set of issues – conservation and tourism in cities. It will help city officials, community organizations, the private sector, academics, NGOs, activists and other stakeholders understand some of the key issues underlying responsible tourism in cities, and will equip them with practical knowledge and resources to help make a positive contribution toward implementing responsible tourism in their city destination.
Please let me know what you think Mexico could teach the world about responsible travel. If there is interest, we’ll conduct similar events in Mexico.
