We are delighted to announce the 1st International Research Conference on Tourism and the Sustainable Development Goals 2019 (Tourism4SDGs19). Tourism4SDGs19, proudly hosted by the Institute of Development Studies, Massey University, will be held from 24-25 January 2019 at Massey University’s Albany campus, Auckland, New Zealand.
The Sustainable Development Goals, ratified at the United Nations in 2015 and set to guide global development through to 2030, urge governments, industry and communities alike to engage in direct efforts to work in more socially, economically and environmentally sustainable ways. As one of the world’s largest industries, tourism should address sustainability issues head on. There is certainly a great deal of rhetoric on the virtues and promise of tourism as a tool for sustainable development, and there have been positive steps towards sustainability by many companies, governments and others. However, it is also claimed that the tourism industry has oversold its sustainable potential.
