International Centre for Responsible Tourism : International Centre for Responsible Tourism Professor Harold Goodwin The Responsible Tourism Movement Five Years on from Cape Town A “movement” : A “movement” Broad range of individuals and groups, a spectrum of groups Moving at different speeds but in one general direction Change is taking place but not quickly enough All forms of tourism can be more responsible – no part of the industry can be allowed to ignore their responsibility. Means different things in different destinations and originating markets; informed - active – consumers & producers The Challenge: : The Challenge: To address the mainstream industry – it is not just about CBT and ecotourism To address both Environment and Development – the triple bottom line. To encourage the industry to accept and exercise Corporate Social Responsibility To work together in multi-stakeholder partnerships to achieve change We need to achieve change faster, much faster Business and CSR : Business and CSR Cost savings Enlightened self interest Staff motivation Responsibility to stakeholders – communities License to operate Customer expectation Relishing Diversity : Relishing Diversity “Responsible Tourism takes many forms … different destinations and stakeholders have different priorities.” Multi-stakeholder processes and co-operation within a shared undertaking to take and exercise responsibility There are no blueprints – there are only local solutions although we can learn from the experiences of others. www.arty.inf Slide 6: Your trip can contribute to economic and social development. Purchase local handicrafts and products to support the local economy using the principles of fair trade. Bargaining for goods should reflect an understanding of a fair wage. Challenging & Educating Consumers Drivers of Change : Drivers of Change Consumer demand for “richer” engagement with destinations and the communities who live there Broader consumer trends in originating markets People want guilt free holidays – particularly at times of maximum indulgence Changes in the investment climate Demands from those in the industry and on the margins of it Legislation and regulation Demands of people in the destination Association of Independent Tour Operators (AITO) 2000 : Association of Independent Tour Operators (AITO) 2000 … we recognize that in carrying out our work as Tour Operators we have a responsibility to respect other people’s places and ways of life. We acknowledge that wherever a Tour Operator does business or sends clients it has a potential to do both good and harm, & we are aware that all too often in the past the harm has outweighed the good. UK Federation of Tour Operators : UK Federation of Tour Operators Millions of people travel to holiday resorts each year and these visitors can make a real difference to destinations – both good and bad. By following responsible tourism practices we can help protect the natural environment, traditions and culture – the things that make holidays special!! Responsible Tourism Committee since 2003 UK Federation of Tour Operators : UK Federation of Tour Operators Responsible tourism is about making a positive difference when we travel: Enjoying ourselves and taking responsibility for our actions - respecting local cultures and the natural environment Giving fair economic returns to local people – helping to spread the benefit of our visit to those who need it most Recognising that water and energy are precious resources that we need to use carefully. Protecting endangered wildlife and preserving the natural and cultural heritage of the places we visit for the future enjoyment of visitors and the people who live there. Responsible Tourism Unit : Responsible Tourism Unit Approach now mainstreamed within the FTO CEO commitments in 2004 Action on accommodation Travelife Initiative www.its4travel.com Beginnings of competition?? Becoming Mainstream : Becoming Mainstream Mintel: by 2010 outbound UK ethical market forecast to be 2.5m trips per year. Jane Ashton head of CSR at First Choice: “We’re not experiencing a huge demand from the average consumer, but we do believe that awareness is increasing, and in a few years time we will have needed to have integrated these principles into our supply chain.” Holiday Lifestyles Responsible Tourism February 2007 : Holiday Lifestyles Responsible Tourism February 2007 Responsible travel is an emerging sector and is at a stage where many consumers are aware that they need to do something but few are currently translating this into actions. This may be due to consumer apathy or because of confusion around the plethora of green accreditations that exist. What is important, however, is how the travel sector embraces this trend and moves it forward. Could this be an opportunity for the travel sector to finally move away from the downward spiral of cost-cutting we have seen over the past few years? Originating Markets : Originating Markets Tour operators adopting and implementing RT policies Specialist travel agencies in source markets and in destinations. Consumer pressure is impacting on the industry in increasing numbers of markets The supply chain is being used to drive change Transportation – not just flying : Transportation – not just flying Increasing awareness about the issue of GHGs and global warming Need to move from carbon offsetting to carbon reduction Destination opportunities The issue of travel and flights raises profound issues of equity. There is a problem : There is a problem Generally in the destination no operator or originating market predominates Domestic tourism is of increasing importance. The destination does not belong to the originating markets Ideally destinations exercise choice over who they invite. National Government need to shift their focus : National Government need to shift their focus From growth to yield From arrivals to seeing tourism as part of a local sustainable development strategy To recognise their role in leading a multi-stakeholder process to achieve economic and social development whilst conserving the environment. Recognise that the issue of whose interests take priority is a political issue. 1996 White Paper: Responsible TourismDevelopment & Promotion of Tourism in South Africa : 1996 White Paper: Responsible TourismDevelopment & Promotion of Tourism in South Africa 1994 Tourism as key driver in reconstruction and development 1996 South African White Paper on Responsible Tourism: transformation agenda DEAT 2001 National Generic Guidelines for Responsible Tourism DEAT 2002 endorsed as national sector guidelines to be used in IDPs.
