Tourism And The 1.5 Degree Target: How Long Can We Keep Traveling As We Do Today?


March 8, 2019

12:00 - 12:45

CityCube Berlin, Auditorium A3

The new report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is abundantly clear: we cannot go on as before. The structure of tourism offers will have to undergo fundamental change. Air transport and cruises, hotels and destinations – what structural changes are we facing? How are lawmakers and investors changing the current framework conditions for tourism? How open are customers to change? Are customers willing to spend more money, or are they even inclined to forgo travel? The results of an exclusive global study by Travelzoo and ITB show how willing the international tourist is to change and how much it is putting our industry under pressure.
