Abstract

Responsible travel covers a lot of ground today. There are interrelated categories—ecotourism, agritourism, geotourism, sustainable travel, ethical travel, green travel, alternative travel, etc. International research and more than 100 annual conferences focusing on this issue have produced suggestions and case studies generally referred to as “responsible travel” or “sustainable travel.” To be considered a responsible travel practitioner or traveler, it is essential that people actively work to support and protect the communities in which they live, work, or visit.
