TOURISM & CLIMATE CHANGE
Tuesday 22 September 2009
The Royal Geographical Society (with IBG), London
Countries across the globe are reporting an increase in extreme weather conditions such as flooding and drought, and the travel industry is often lambasted by the media for its contribution to CO2 emissions.
Please join us for an event jointly organised with the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG). Through domestic and international case studies discover the projects that help mitigate tourism's impact on climate change with the opportunity to network over a buffet supper.
