  • Seminarium

Welcome to a seminar on how to enable sustainable visits. In the seminar we will present findings published in a brand new book that is sprung out of the multidisciplinary research project on sustainable visits at Uppsala University Campus Gotland.

In the book researchers from Uppsala University, together vid colleagues at other universities in Sweden and abroad, explore the theme of sustainable visits. The book will be published in October and it introduces the topic of sustainable visits as follows:

“Visits and visiting are imperative. Cultures and societies have evolved from, and rest on, the laurels of human encounters. Human history teaches us convincingly that who we are today has developed through our ability to move and meet. However, – no matter how much the visits and meetings are imperative – the ever-increasing number of people on the move round the world now challenge the social, cultural, and ecological systems of whole societies and, ultimately, the entire global ecosystem’s sustainability. The challenge this book addresses is how to enable the transition to a more sustainable development in the tourism industry and thereby enable sustainable visits.”

A link to registration will come soon

The seminar will be followed by a mingle with refreshments.
