UNWTO Seminar on the Future of Tourism: Innovation, Governance and Critical Paths
Held in collaboration with the Ulysses Foundation, this seminar discussed qualitative scenarios on the future of tourism up to the year 2040 and beyond. It also explored the innovations, critical paths and institutional changes required to approach the subset of intelligent scenarios. The seminar included presentations and panel discussions from a host of highly-qualified tourism professionals from the public and private sector as well as academia, and will be professionally videotaped and distributed.
The theme is highly relevant when approached from a time where tourism has seen dramatic advances in science, technology and innovation, resulting in lowered barriers to entry and policies to encourage sustainability, mitigate climate change and foster inclusive development, among many other issues.
