Tourism is a dynamic global industry which has grown and changed dramatically over the past twenty years. It is one of the largest resource consuming industries in the world. The growth of travel has led to the concern shown for the environmental, economical as well as social sustainability. It is also the fastest growing and important industry in terms of the number of employees and its potential for the social, economic and environmental impacts. This theme aims at gathering researchers on sustainable tourism from a borad range of fields as well as engage the next generation of tourist research scholars around the Baltic Sea.
