Innovative and promising practices in sustainable tourism: Case Studies

September 1, 2019 - Author: Edited by Nicole Vaugeous, Miles Phillips, Doug Arbogast and Patrick Brouder

Cooperative Extension specialists and partners have worked together on several tourism case studies. The intent of this volume is to provide an opportunity for academics, Extension professionals, industry stakeholders and community practitioners to reflect, discuss and share the innovative approaches that they have taken to develop sustainable tourism in a variety of different contexts. This volume includes nine cases from across North and Central America reaching from Hawaii in the west to New England in the east and from Quebec in the north to Costa Rica in the south. Case studies are a valuable way to synthesize and share lessons learned and they help to create new knowledge and enhanced applications in practice. There are two main audiences for this volume: 1) faculty and students in tourism related academic programs who will benefit from having access to current case studies that highlight how various stakeholders are approaching common issues, opportunities and trends in tourism, and 2) extension agents and practitioners who will gain important insights from the lessons learned in the current case study contexts.
