This subject aims to develop an awareness of significant contemporary issues arising from tourism's impacts on its economic, natural/ecological, social and cultural environments. It explores appropriate policy, planning and management responses to these issues, encapsulated in the pursuit of sustainable tourism. It critically examines a range of broad tourism industry responses, individual enterprise initiatives and forms of government intervention designed to achieve more sustainable tourism. The need to be mindful of tourism's impacts and the pursuit of sustainability are significant parts of the context in which contemporary tourism as a whole, and specific firms within it, operate.
