Interesting write up from the perspectives of flight attendants.

Hello, did you know all graduating student members of TTRA are eligible for a one year free membership post graduation? Please reach out to them if you qualify (they told me to tell other students). I've just been awarded a one year membership because my student membership just expired. You're welcome :)
I found this interesting enough to share with all of you. https://booster.bookingcares.com/. Applying for 2019 is closed, but this might be applicable for someone on this Page for future consideration. I know I am book-marking this site!
I think this is an interesting news article on efforts the city of Venice, Italy is making to curb over tourism and promote sustainable tourism.

The Center for Sustainable Tourism invites you to join John de Graaf for a seminar and film screening of his new film, Stewart Udall: The Politics of Beauty.

This film captures the inspiring story of former Secretary of the Interior Stewart Udall (1920-2010) and his legacy as an advocate of racial and environmental justice, international diplomacy, the arts and culture, and, most of all, the protection of our shared environment and its magnificent natural beauty. The story highlights the bi-partisan nature of Udall’s efforts and calls on us to move beyond the polarization of our time and work together to protect our shared natural heritage. Under Udall’s watch, more units were added to our national park system than under any other Interior secretary in history.

The 78-minute film will be followed by brief remarks by film director John de Graaf and a Q & A.

View the two-minute film trailer here (https://vimeo.com/780996587/e108994898), and for more information, please visit the website here (https://stewartudallfilm.org/).

ASU researchers, Dr. Xiao Xiao, Dr. Junyu Lu, Peizhe Li, and colleagues publish new article in the Journal of Outdoor Recreation and Tourism entitled 'Social carrying capacity and emotion dynamics in urban national parks during the COVID-19 pandemic'.

"Study results suggest that visitors have the highest level of motivation for scenery and culture viewing and are generally satisfied with the environmental quality and design and COVID-19 prevention strategies and implementation efforts within the park. Moreover, this study suggests that the level of crowding and COVID-19 prevention strategies and implementation can affect visitors’ emotions in urban national parks significantly. These findings highlight the importance of enforcing the social carrying capacity limits and COVID-19 prevention strategies for urban parks and protected areas to mitigate physical and mental health risks during the COVID-19 pandemic."

Dr. Nicholas Wise and colleagues publish new article in the Journal of Sport & Tourism entitled "The city and the country: Cardiff, England and the 2015 Rugby World Cup".

This paper looks at the incorporation of a Welsh city in an event hosted by England where the VisitEngland promotional campaign was based upon images of ‘England’s green and pleasant land’. Drawing upon the work of the cultural theorist Raymond Williams, it considers some of the issues shaping tourism promotion and assesses the imagery and discourse relating to a city that sits outside the borders of the host nation of an event.

To address the question of “how to move towards a higher state of consciousness?,” a transformational tourism paradigm is presented, which suggests an inner path towards a state of “Being,” stimulated by peak travel experiences and B-cognition, which can initiate harmony of the gross and subtle elements of human existence and transcend the self to the ultimate higher purpose of life.
