Tourism will be sustainable

The tourism of the future is sustainable tourism: better integrated in the environment and adapted to the landscape, more closely connected to the local identity, kinder guest-host relationships, less resource consuming, more itinerant, more fluid, more flexible and more energy efficient.

Sustainable tourism will only be possible through the active participation of the university research community to design sustainable buildings, establish load capacities, improve flow management, evaluate the impact of tourism on the ecosystem, collect and disseminate information about good practices and bring an innovative approach to landscape management.

The University of Girona is a pioneer in scientific research into sustainable tourism. It has collaborated on local projects (in the Garrotxa Volcanic Zone National Park, the Montseny region) and on international ones (the San Francisco River in Brazil, Cajamarca in Peru). It has been involved in cross-disciplinary projects that have been converted in references and as demonstrated its commitment to a sustainable tourism model.

José Antonio Donaire is the director of INSETUR (Higher Institute of Tourism Studies) and a professor at the UdG.
