The development of strategic planning and management tools for the tourism industry in the destinations has become an essential step not only to overcome and address the challenges that these are facing, but also to create long-term and integrative dynamics that guarantee the sustainability of the tourism activities in the future. There is a need for new models and strategies that are built on sustainable development principles and enforce digital transition of tourism, that promote effective and collaborative governance among all stakeholders groups, that facilitate more innovative processes and that pay close attention to the specific strengths and challenges of tourism destinations and territories.
This panel will discuss how will tourism destinations foster green and digital transition and develop new governance models in the future.
