Living on the Edge – Coastal Tourism and Sustainable Consumption, 4th & 5th June, West Cumbria

This World Environment Day event organised by the Samuel Lindow Foundation is being held in collaboration with The Tourism Society and the North West Coastal Forum and will be held at the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) Westlakes campus in West Cumbria, with a parallel event being held at UCLan’s campus at Pyla, Cyprus to enable involvement of the Turkish Cypriot communities at Pyla and the community of West Cumbria. Spanning international resort tourism on Cyprus and the local visitor economy of West Cumbria, and with a special focus on sustainable consumption, this symposium will promote a powerful exchange of perspectives on the environment and coastal tourism – one of the fastest growing areas in the world’s largest industry.

Through a day and a half programme of visits, talks and seminars, the symposium will explore tourism and the power of the sea, from physical environmental processes, the impacts on culture and coastal communities, and its impact on our own wellbeing. The symposium will bring together an international audience of tourism professionals and policy makers with diverse backgrounds, but common interests.

More information is available on the Samuel Lindow Foundation website, where a flyer and programme with speakers and booking information is now available.
