The Geotourism Industry in the 21st Century The Origin, Principles, and Futuristic Approach

Langue : Anglais

Coordonnateur : Nekouie Sadry Bahram

Here is an engaging overview of the development of, definition of, and approach to modern geotourism, a growing movement to help sustain and showcase the distinctive geographical characteristics of many places around the world. This volume, The Geotourism Industry in the 21st Century: The Origin, Principles, and Futuristic Approach,provides a clear conceptual framework with illustrative examples from all corners of the world to better understand abiotic nature-based tourism.

The volume looks at the establishment and effective management of the over 130 UNESCO geoparks around the world and other travel and tourism destinations of interest for their significant historical, cultural, and frequently stunning physical attributes. With studies from a selection of geotourist areas in Poland, Japan, Turkey, Brazil, Albania, California, Mexico, Peru, and other places, the volume explores urban geotourism, mining heritage, geomorphological landforms, geoheritage (based on cultural and historical interest), roadside geology of the U. S., community engagement and volunteer management programs, and much more.
