Transforming Tourism
through more Sustainable Behaviour

The Tourism, Leisure and Hospitality sectors have a critical role to play towards more sustainable development on themes identified in the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). There is a need to combat climate change, develop eco-consciousness, create responsible tourism experiences, reduce inequality and fight poverty amongst many other challenges. However, a sound understanding of consumer behaviour that is specific to Tourism, Leisure and Hospitality for achieving sustainability has become increasingly pressing. Broadly speaking, what are the psychological factors that may influence consumer choices in the context of sustainability? And how might we encourage the sustainable consumption of tourism-related services?
