(Can’t think of a more ill thought out topic for a hot Friday evening, but it’s on my mind so…)
Trying to work out what kind of balance makes sense now that, at least within a subsection of society like DiS, people are becoming more aware of the negative effects of wealthy (ok, relatively) westerners descending upon the rest of the world. Personally, I also think I’ll be looking much more locally for time away…given I have a dog. But is that any more responsible? Parts of the UK are also becoming overcome with visitors (Isle of Skye) and is it necessarily beneficial to take away tourist trade for popular/long distance destinations?
Disclaimer 1: I’m sure many of you have been thinking/acting upon this for far longer than me
Disclaimer 2: Yes this is a very reductive summary of a very complex issue. Hoping discussion will cover that…at least with some links to good articles.
