Focus Group: Mountain Tourism
Sustainable tourism development in alpine regions has the potential to preserve cultural heritages, fosters the implementation of CRR, and triggers the inclusion of minority groups into planning processes of tourism facilities and related promotional activities related to that. Nevertheless, this field of research still requires further discussion. Accordingly, the respective focus group calls for contributions such as:
- Opportunities for preservation of cultural heritage of both intangible and tangible artifacts in alpine tourism management.
- The role of corporate regional responsibility (CRR) and the identification of regional actors in sustainable alpine tourism development.
- Perspectives on tourism activities regarding products and services aimed at promoting diversity, equality, and inclusion for minorities related to cultures, ethnicities, genders, classes, and other social characteristics in alpine regions
