An Arkansas Community Looks for an Execution to End Its Ache - New York Times
Oaxaca, Mexico - During the economic downturn caused by the social protests in 2006, Oaxacans became increasingly aware of the value of 'tourism' in sectors in which direct interaction with visitors was limited. Oaxaca has numerous Spanish language schools and many of these students live with local families. When the number of students arriving began to diminish, the homestay hosts purchased less food from local markets, thereby instigating a ripple effect that led to less money circulating in the community.
How we make sense of 'community' and 'travel' has been focused in past years on 'community-based tourism' in which communities outright own the tourism operation. While there have been some successes (Madidi in

is toward a more mature understanding of communities and tourism, in which we use the power of the social web and face-to-face encounters to catalyze healthier interactions among visitors and locals alike.
Responsible travel creates 'better places to live and better places to visit' which works wonders in raising the living standards and happiness for all who care about how others benefit.
