About this Event

Don't miss your chance to hear Professor Geoffrey Wall from the University of Waterloo speak about sustainable development, sustainable tourism and sustainable livelihoods.

While widely accepted and enshrined in legislation and policy at multiple scales, sustainable development is a slippery concept that is difficult to work with. Sustainable tourism is too narrow to embrace the complexities of sustainability which is inherently multi-sectoral. A sustainable livelihoods approach offers a pragmatic way forward. Join us to learn more about a sustainable livelihoods approach to development that will be described, justified and illustrated through tourism cases.
