Villages Nature: Reinventing Sustainable Tourism Last Updated on 2018-03-29 08:35:18   Last October I was privileged along with my colleague Ms. Silvia Barbone, Founder of PM4SD (Project Management For Sustainable Development), and FEST Executive Director (Foundation European Sustainable Tourism) to attend the inauguration of Villages Nature. Silvia and I had visited the site while under construction last May and experiencing the opening of the resort was a unique and unforgettable experience. Following my first visit I wrote an article titled, ‘Villages Nature: A Potential Game Changer for Sustainable Tourism’ where I began to examine how Villages Nature was meeting the challenges defined in the science of the 9 Planetary Boundaries. I was very excited to attend the inauguration. The resort had already received recognition by UNEP as one of the most sustainable tourism resorts in the world so I was curious to learn more.  ...

The Tourism Crisis: Impacts and Solutions Last Updated on 2013-11-25 12:23:32 When most people think of tourism they rarely think of tourism as a crisis. Yet, last year according to the U.N. World Tourism Organization, tourists crossing international boarders reached over 1 billion a year for the first time.
