Responsible Tourism: some case studies

Responsible Tourism has a focus on the people who live in a place, and not on the tourists themselves. It is about reducing the impact on the environment, although there are some who suggest that the impact of tourism is greater than people believe.
For the last few month's I've been working to update some resources for TUI: they are called the Better World Detectives, and are for KS2 (keep an eye out for some resources for older students which will be appearing before too long)
I'll let you know when the final versions appear in the next week or so...

The stories from Venice a few weeks ago, with the installation of some turnstiles to try to reduce overcrowding at certain points, suggest that the residents of Venice are being sidelined in favour of tourists. They are being priced out of their own home town, which is being overrun every day by a growing tide of tourists.
Barcelona has seen similar protests. There is also a concern about the impact of Air BnB (which I shall return to later)
PEUAT is a Spanish scheme which aims to tackle one of the issues.
Read about it here. It's a Special Tourist Accommodation plan.

Barcelona is the city where this plan is being introduced

Another scheme encourages businesses to source the food that they serve to tourists from local producers rather than relying in imported food.
Fethiye is one of those...
