August is for Circular Tourism – #CircularOctober
What is Circular Tourism? It’s sustainable tourism based around Circular values. The prospect that the tourism industry may not own the products they use in their delivery of their services to travellers, instead leasing them for return at end of their use-cycle to be repaired, reprocessed, remanufactured or recycled time and time again.
Circular Tourism offers community engagement through the very mechanisms of conducting their Circular business as many functions within Circular values should be managed locally. Controversially, Circular Tourism may not seek to include fair working conditions, human rights or preservation of cultural heritage under its auspices.
While there are more than 200 sustainable tourism standards around the world, the tourism industry has a long way to go before it can consider itself on the road to sustainable practices. At the very least a Circular Tourism model is well worth considering.
We are also building a significant resource base around each of the #CircularOctober themes, just visit #CircularOctober Resources.
