Introduction: What is Tourism’s Purpose in a VUCA World?
Welcome to Season 2 of GOOD Awaits! One year into their journey to research and explore regenerative tourism practice in Aotearoa New Zealand, Debbie and Josie are thrilled to be continuing these critical conversations.
Continuing to unpack the paradigm shift that is required for a regenerative tourism future, this season of GOOD Awaits will go beyond the perceived silo of tourism with a diverse range of guests including story-tellers, students, researchers, and local hosts. Debbie and Josie will explore how these pioneers are creating a new guiding story at individual, local and systemic levels.
A critical question that emerged from Season 1 was: what is tourism’s purpose? Season 2 explores this question further by asking: what is tourism’s purpose in a VUCA - volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous - world? How can we adapt and be resilient while using tourism to regenerate our communities and places? What new stories and myths do we need in order to see ourselves as regenerators of our places?
Journey with Debbie and Josie as they explore these questions and as we work towards an evolving, connected, regenerative tourism future together.
