A Nuanced Look at Sustainable Tourism: A Conversation With Jeremy Sampson Intrepid Times

    • Society & Culture

The idea of sustainable tourism can leave a weird taste in your mouth, especially as the term is used incorrectly in all kinds of contexts and scenarios. But the idea, in its authentic form, is an important one, and one that we know many of our listeners are interested in learning more about, so we decided to tackle it on this episode of The Travel Writing Podcast.

For this conversation, which we knew would need a nuanced and candid approach, we invited on Jeremy Sampson, the CEO of The Travel Foundation, a nonprofit organization that helps the travel industry better manage its impact and improve local livelihoods.

During the episode we talked about the important questions for travel writers to ask when writing about a destination, how the Glasgow Declaration on Climate Action and Tourism has created and maintained momentum toward positive change in the tourism sector, how writers’ ability to demonstrate nuance can be key in advancing positive tourism practices, and more.
