FuTuristica: Pressures and impacts of tourism on nature, society and infrastructure
The Department of Sustainable Tourism Destination
at the UP Faculty of Tourism Studies Turistica
kindly invites you to the experts forum FuTuristica with the topic
Pressures and impacts of tourism on nature, society and infrastructure,
on Tuesday, 28 November 2017 at 1 PM at Turistica, Obala 11a, Portorož.
With this forum of experts, we are setting a starting point for a much-needed continuous debate on how tourism affects and changes the quality of life in Slovenia and how it should be managed in the future.
The reality is that the volume of tourism is increasing and so is the discourse on its positive and negative impacts. With the forum, we are providing an opportunity for relevant stakeholders to present, to professionals and the general public, empirically based facts on tourism impacts deriving from their personal or business environment. Only empirically supported facts on tourism are an appropriate tool for tourism development in Slovenia.
The forum will host:
- Morakot Dita-Apichai (College of Innovation and Technology, Rajabhat Songklha University, Thailand)
- Elias BJ Gislason (Icelandic Tourist Board, Iceland)
- Anton Gosar, UP tenured professor
- members of the Department of Sustainable Tourism Destination at UP FTŠ Turistica
and representatives of the following organisations:
|Mercator d.d.||Infrastruktura Bled||Umanotera|
|Okolje Piran||Rižanski vodovod||Turizem Ljubljana|
|Snaga Ljubljana||Park Škocjanske jame||DARS|
We kindly invite everyone with business and personal interests in tourism!
