Overtourism (FutureLearn)
Consider the potential challenges and solutions of overtourism in tourism management and explore the negative impacts of tourism. 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.
