In the second episode of Research in Reach, hosts Marco and Erik converse with PhD-student Shirley Nieuwland about sustainable tourism. How has doing research changed her personal approach to travelling? Where should cities put their focus when it comes to tourism? How do you ensure that your research leads to a practical outcome and is discussed beyond the academic environment?
The three of them discuss the balance between tourists and locals, sharing insights with a larger public on Shirley’s blog, and the struggles of travelling sustainably with others. Whether you are travelling close to home or around the world, Shirley’s insight might just enhance your next tourist adventure.
