Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

1 Citation (SciVal)


Purpose: This paper aims to show how continued failure for tourism to address its global impacts is likely to imply the end of tourism as we know it. Design/methodology/approach: This paper is an opinion piece that discusses tourism out of the global situation in spring 2019. Findings: Tourism is about to undermine its own future, largely as a failure of UNWTO and ICAO to address environmental challenges. Ignorance and disinterest continue to characterize supranational and business organizations such as WTTC. Originality/value: The text is intended to be a wakeup call.
