ENV205H5: Sustainable Tourism (Winter 2021)

Assignment Overview and Goals (from the Sustainable Development Goals Assignment Guidelines)

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals are of major importance globally. They “provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future.” As we will discuss in class, tourism has a role to play in helping to achieve the SDGs and is important that these connections are made.

The goal of this assignment is for you to consider how the tourism sector is connected with these global sustainability goals. You are to pick two of the 17 SDGs and write a reflection on how tourism can help achieve them.

Use discussions from class, assigned readings, news articles, and your general knowledge to comprehensively analyze connections between your chosen SDGs and tourism.
