Transparency Notebook

The silver bullet to fix the whole problem: FIFA needs a culture of transparency and needs to end its endemic culture of secrecy because that is what allows the corruption to flourish.

Essay: Transparency and Tourism

Transparency goes beyond disclosure to joining a public conversation. The top things we'd like to see more clearly:

1) Open access to tourism stats

2) Livestreaming of conservation and tourism conferences (bonus points for events that receive and answer questions via Twitter)

3) Events that engage locals in a meaningful fashion

4) Immediate access to tourism publications and consulting reports
