Joining the dots Culture, Community, Environment
Connecting the dots… Culture, Community, Environment documents our learnings from the second edition of the Outlook Responsible Tourism Summit & Awards held on January 19, 2017, in New Delhi, India. A neutral platform for discussions on how tourism can positively impact the lives of local communities and the environment in the region, the Summit brings a host of key public and private stakeholders under the same roof every year to discuss common challenges and solutions. From overtourism and balancing the needs and aspirations of the local communities to raising awareness through digital platforms and trying new business models, we ideated on several important issues at the Summit that will determine how India, and the South Asian region at large, adopts and adapts to a more responsible, ethical and inclusive form of tourism. This document is a distillation of those innovative ideas and opinions.
