Introducing "IT & Ecotourism 2.0 Networks" in the Forum "Developing african eco-sustainable tourism: National Parks", Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (17-18/06/2008)
I'm glad to inform of this interesting event organized by Casa Africa

Harold Goodwin, Director of Responsible Tourism International Centre of Leeds University will open the forum, followed by experts from Senegal, South Africa, Benin, Ivory Cost, Mauritania, Guinee Bissau...

, you will probably notice that 2.0 is not at the order of the day... But this is what we are for ;)Due to a last minute change, I had the opportunity to substitute Nuria El Khadir Palomo, so I could talk about "Information Technologies & Ecotourism 2.0 Networks"
Let's take advantage of this post to launch a kind of qualitative study: "What do you think about Fair Tourism?"
How Fair is it in your opinion?
Do you see it as a pertinent solution to fight against poverty?
Or do you think it will actually bring more problems (environement, social, culture, etc.) than solutions?
Tourism is actually taking a growing part of developing countries exports, as you can see in this WTO Report: "Tourism & Poverty Alleviation"
What do you think?
