A Manifesto for the Future of Tourism

Go to chapters
Tourism is out of control. We think the industry has reached the fork in the road: there are two choices. Either we come together to tame tourism into a force for good or we continue further into a global crisis.

There is nothing currently in existence that adequately brings together in one place serious ideas, actions and solutions on most of the problems that the tourism industry is both responsible for, and is facing.

Our manifesto contains 14 chapters dedicated to global issues in which tourism plays a massive part.

The way forward

We think tourism can be fixed. We have lots of ideas at Responsible Travel, but not all the answers. We've enlisted the help of experts for each chapter. This is a work in progress - there will be amendments. But that's really the point.
