WTM keynote speaker to address climate change and tourism - The keynote speaker for World Responsible Tourism Day at this year’s World Travel Market is Kevin Anderson, Professor of Energy and Climate Change in the School of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering at the University of Manchester (pictured). Anderson, who is also Deputy Director of the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research, advises the Prime Minister’s office on carbon trading and has contributed to the development of the UK’s Climate Change Act. He believes the UNCC’s objective is “just” about possible “if we deliver a radical reduction in energy consumption now”. However, he believes “we have done nothing about climate change for the past 25 years”.

Essay

Ron: My dream come true for the 2012 World Travel Market would be an event that embraced the social web and local travel in equal measure.

This would mean more livestreaming video coverage in which those around the world who are not attending in person are able to participate an ask questions. I would like to see an event that embraced the local community (which we really have not heard much about) through social bridging events like photo safaris and fringe meetings.

I would love to see tweets about the event using the #rtyear2012 hashtag and news posted directly to the Facebook Group on Responsible Tourism Networking.

Leo Hickman on the Hot Seat: Final Call
@gillgreentravel
@leohickman

Writer Leo Hickman talks to Stephen Sackur following the release of his controversial new book The Final Call.
Buzzwords: Boycotts, Ripples, Lone Voice, Water
Very odd to call his a 'lone voice' ... odder still that they promote the book 4 years after publication
Kudos to WTM for webcasting this live

Leo Hickman on boycotts
ripples
lone voice
provocative in 2007, now, a bit kind of late to call this provocative
tourism must raise its game
criticizes advertorial nature of travel journalism
water consumption
@catherinemack asks @leohickman is there a chance that travel writers and editors could come together?
