      CFP for Paper Sessions for the AAG, New York, 22-28 February 2011

      Tourism Geographies and Global Change: Local Communities and Economies in
      Transformation
      Joint sponsored session by the AAG Recreation, Tourism and Sport Specialty
      Group and the IGU Commission on the Geography of Tourism, Leisure and Global
      Change

      Global change and recently climate change related impacts have emerged as a
      major discussion in tourism geographies and tourism related policy-making.
      The global change affects the basis of the tourism structures and mobilities
      through different sets impacts and transformations. On the other hand
      tourism is also a major contributor to global change with various scales and
      nature of impacts. In addition to global socio-economic situation many
      tourist destinations and tourism activities are directly dependent on
      climate (and weather), and thus the global process of climate change will
      most probably have an impact on all kinds of tourism related development and
      management actions in future. However, some activities, actors and regions
      in tourism are more sensitive to changes. Thus calls for increasing
      attention in tourism geographies on vulnerabilities and adaptations in
      tourism development. This session aims to discuss the relation between
      global change and tourism with special interest on climate related changes
      and coping mechanisms in communities and local economies. Papers may focus
      on specific case studies, theories or practices of tourism geographies and
      global change.
