About the CST 3rd Edition:
From the beginning of time, human movement & settlement patterns were solely dependent on basic human needs such as food, water, & trade. Today, & as we progressed into the 20th & 21st Centuries, these factors continue to influence patterns of the diaspora in different forms & with different motivations such as education, social betterment, & financial restrictions that were all usually coupled with necessity. However, in the contemporary & developed world, essential travel developed into a widespread activity of the masses supported by diverse services. As a leisure activity, according to Appadurai in 2002, Tourism represents an exchange of culture & plays a significant role in understanding the world we live in.
In recent times, the inter-relationships between tourism, culture, & heritage have been the center of discussion among scholars & researchers at both national & international levels. Yet, there remains a need to better comprehend this link existing between culture & natural environment as a way of protecting & re-creating its resources. This link between culture, environment, heritage, society, & economics, known as the inextricable link, forms the basis of sustainable development & tourism. With a current failure to put theory into practice & words into action, there is a persistent need for practical solutions to achieve sustainable tourism.
That's why The 3rd International Conference on "Cultural Sustainable Tourism (CST)" will be held in collaboration with Instituto Universitrio da Maia - ISMAI, at Maia of Portugal, from the 13th to the 15th of October 2021.
The International Conference on "Cultural Sustainable Tourism - 3rd Edition" focuses on discussing the complex relations between culture, heritage, sustainability, & tourism. It showcases the different methods & trending strategies for preserving, spreading, & improving cultural & architectural heritage for the following decades. It focuses also on addressing the existing tensions in the assessment of cultural meanings & values to better understand tourism in the context of & in relation to preservation & sustainable development of cultural diversity & heritage resources. Provided that the tourism sector is becoming more & more willing to engage in the sustainable development scheme, key concepts & topics shape this conference's agenda starting with policy & planning goals, whereby tourism is integrated with different development aims, to issues of structure & governance as well as heritage, sustainability, & biodiversity.
CST-2021 is a platform to spark discussion on emerging research methods on sustainable tourism that draws on integrated methods from many other disciplines such as Economics, Architecture, Geography, Sociology, & Management. It paves the way for researchers, professors, planners, architects, & stakeholders to take part in conveying & spreading awareness of the importance of cultural tourism as well as its development.
