Greening the new golden age: A research agenda for exploring tourists' environmental lifestyle and travel behaviours

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference Paper published in Proceedings

Abstract

This paper proposes a research agenda for exploring tourists' sustainable lifestyle and travel behaviours. The agenda highlights the need to differentiate between green consumerism and environmental practices, considerations of the kind and complexity of behaviours, as well as spatial and temporal aspects. An increased understanding of barriers and attitudes with regards to such differentiations in lifestyle and travel behaviours will contribute to a better understanding of why people (do not) engage in sustainable travel behaviours.
