The consequences of the pandemic will not be enough to return them to their inhabitants, if we do not put a brake on a market that is just waiting to return to the status quo ante. But normality was a problem and the solution could come from below, from the networks of communities who propose self-regulating sustainable tourism models, like Fairbnb.coop.
With our Community Powered Tourism we can make our contribution to achieving the SDGs – Goal 11, Sustainable cities and communities, which concerns all those who live in the cities or would like to visit them.
The pandemic gives us a once in a lifetime chance to break the mould. We don’t want to go back to the past, because the past is the problem. Business as usual is not an option. Regenerative tourism can be a solution for the years and the world to come: let’s build a different future together!
