      Tourism and Heritage: Opportunities and Challenges for Conservation Geography

      Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Valparaiso, Chile
      10-13 November 2011


      Heritage is an important resource for tourism. Globally tourism activities based on the attractiveness of different kinds and scales of heritage resources are growing which provides opportunities for development, socio-economic benefit creation, conservation support, education and learning, for example. Heritage tourism, including  cultural, ethnic and indigenous tourism, can also empower local cultures and people and support cultural identities and traditions.  However, growing tourism and the use and creation of heritage sites can also produce challenges and conflicts that relate to over
      utilisation of heritage sites, power issues in participation and cultural representations and misuse of heritage related socio-cultural meanings and values in tourism. Therefore, tourism geographies, conservation geography and heritage tourism development call for further discussions, research and critical thinking on sustainable
      heritage management.

      The overall purpose of this symposium is to discuss the geographical aspects of heritage tourism, including cultural and natural heritage and related issues, and focus on the opportunities and challenges based on growing tourism interest in heritage. A special aim is to stimulate discussions on conservation geography and tourism studies.
