    Dear colleagues,


    Call for Abstracts - Book Title: “Tourism in the Green Economy”

    Editors: Dr Vijay Reddy and Dr Keith Wilkes



    For the last few years, international organisations such as the UNWTO and UNEP have been advocating that the green economy approach has the potential to achieve low-carbon socially inclusive sustainable growth and to meet the combined carbon mitigation scenarios of the tourism sector (i.e. 68% reduction when compared to ‘business-as-usual’ level). The concept surrounding the green economy approach is not new and the topic is very much expected to gain more attention in the light of the 2012 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20). It is extremely important to identify methods and pursue appropriate strategies that will reduce the huddles facing the carbon reduction targets of the tourism sector and to work in future for the green economy transition.

    The aim of this book (2013) is to provide the first comprehensive set of tourism debates, early responses, on-going and up-coming research initiatives that will enable tourism’s transition to a green economy. Please find attached flyer for more details.

    ‘Earthscan with Routledge’ is interested in publishing this book. The editors invite abstracts from contributors around the world, under categories: a) understanding the Green Economy concept and the role of tourism, b) responses and initiatives in greening tourism, and c) emerging techniques and research implications.

    Submission of abstracts (150 words): 30 September 2012

    Submission of full chapters (6000 words): 30 January 2013

    We would be happy to discuss your early thoughts and we look forward to receiving abstracts representing travel, tourism, events and hospitality fields. If you have any queries in the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact us. Thank you for your interest.

    With kind regards,
    Dr. Vijay Reddy (mvreddy@...)
