You will develop a greater awareness of the negative impacts of unplanned growth and its linked stresses. You will learn how to manage tourism in natural and protected areas and how to apply sustainability concepts. You will also learn how to apply the core elements of sustainability to the development and ongoing management of tourism businesses and destinations.
