Fully revised and updated for a second edition Introduction to Sustainable Tourism provides a comprehensive, pragmatic, and realistic look at integrating sustainability into tourism. It now includes two new chapters on regenerative tourism and disruptors including the impact of COVID-19 as well as new material on systems thinking, influencing behaviours and green marketing. Using first-hand research projects and packed with international case studies, it combines theoretical and applied knowledge with a scaffolded learning approach and takes a comprehensive look at practical management tools, certifications and innovation as part of the process of operationalising and implementing sustainable tourism.

An Introduction to Sustainable Tourism 2nd edition provides a comprehensive, pragmatic, and realistic look at integrating sustainability into tourism. It adopts a systems-perspective, looking at the whole tourism supply chain to provide an integrated viewpoint of sustainability in the tourism industry and asks:

  • How does policy encourage or discourage sustainability?
  • How do intermediaries influence the sale of sustainable tourism?
  • What are the operators concerns, how do tourists themselves respond to them?
  • What are the values of sustainability in tourism and what are the impacts and ňútrade-offs" to the tourist experience?

The text uses QR codes and hyperlinks to provide readers with additional resources to better understand the material presented in the textbook.

An Introduction to Sustainable Tourism 2nd edition is an essential text for tourism students across all levels, undergraduate and postgraduate studies.
