1st Tourism and the SDGs Conference: “Critical and Constructive Conversations”

24th to 25th January 2019

Massey University, Albany, Auckland (New Zealand)

There is certainly a great deal of rhetoric on the virtues and promise of tourism as a tool for sustainable development, and there have been positive steps towards sustainability by many companies, governments and others. However, it is also claimed that the tourism industry has oversold its sustainable potential.

This conference on Tourism and the SDGs offers the opportunity for a wide range of scholars and tourism stakeholders to discuss and debate both (i) challenges to tourism contributing to the SDGs, and (ii) ways in which tourism can deliver on its potential to be more inclusive, equitable and sustainable, in line with the values embedded in the Global Goals.

We invite delegates to register for the conference now!

Additionally, we encourage delegates to register their organisation’s interest in participating in the tourism industry showcase.
