Discover the global impact of too many tourists

Tourism has long been considered highly beneficial.

It can be argued to have brought wealth to forgotten rural communities, cushioned the blow of financial crashes, conserved critically endangered species, and restored crumbling historic cities.

However, this entirely positive view is increasingly being challenged as scholars and practitioners analyse tourism’s negative impact in more depth.

On this course, you’ll have the opportunity to explore what overtourism is and how it’s affecting communities. You’ll explore its meaning in a tourism management context and consider potential solutions.

This course is designed for anyone interested in learning more about the overtourism phenomenon.

It will be of particular interest to those with a background in social sciences, arts, sustainable development or business studies, or anyone with a professional background in tourism and hospitality.
