Cultural Sustainable Tourism


The tourism business has yet given rise to some serious problems, including social expenditures and ecological impacts. Many old-fashioned local civilizations have practically lost their identification. Their communities have adjusted their economy only to this industry. Both the cultural and natural – urban or rural – landscapes have also paid a great price for certain models of tourism. These troubles will remain if economic prosperity is the only target, leading to economic achievements that eventually become catastrophic. It is also a grave fault to ignore the fact that visitors nowadays are increasingly demanding in environmental and cultural terms.

Never before have communication and transport links been so crucial as today. Natural ecosystems are recently a rarity on Earth and ecologists talk nowadays about ‘socio-ecosystems’. In Addition to this, environmental and tourism Cultures are facing a Dominant challenge. The ‘Global Change’ is a group of natural environmental variations that are strongly affected by industrial and social developments. Natural developments are constitutional in this planet’s ecosystem (the ‘ecosphere’). Also, industrial and social variations are inherent to humankind (the ‘no sphere’) and are now becoming boundless. Cities are growing rapidly and technology requires more large areas. Many conventional rural areas are being neglected.

Tourism should also play an important role in this context. Thus, interestingly, many historic agricultural districts have maintained, or even recovered, their local population numbers through intelligent strategies of tourism focused on nature and rural culture. Natural landscapes and biodiversity are becoming increasingly appreciated. The tourism industry must be able to respond to these aspirations. Cultural Sustainable Tourism (CST- 2017) aims to find ways to protect the natural and cultural landscape through the development of new solutions which minimize the adverse effects of tourism.
