Sustainable tourism expert Dr. David Perkins explains.
Our weekly program, Missouri State Journal, is a collaboration between KSMU Radio and Missouri State University. It's hosted and produced by MSU's Office of Strategic Communication, and it airs each Tuesday morning at 9:45 on KSMU.
When traveling to explore new places and cultures, it’s important to consider how we can make our trips more sustainable to protect communities and the environment.
Traveling sustainably doesn’t have to be difficult. Start by supporting local businesses or take small steps to reduce your carbon footprint.
A helpful resource to find out more about global standards for sustainable travel and tourism is the Global Sustainable Tourism Council.
