    April 25, 7:00 PM @ The Banff Centre for Arts & Creativity Max Bell Auditorium

    Hear author Megan Epler Wood speak about Sustainable Tourism on a Finite Planet. According to the UNWTO, tourism accounted for 10% of the global economy in 2016 and is projected to continue increasing 4% or more annually until 2030. Can the increase in out-bound travel be reconciled with the pressures placed on developing countries to enhance their tourism offerings? How will this global growth impact mature tourism destinations, particularly those in protected areas? Epler Wood lays out an integrated vision for sustainable tourism that calls on public and private sector decision-makers to assess the current and future value of natural, social and cultural capital to guide investments in destinations and protect vital resources.
