Finding Solutions for the Overtourism Dilemma

Skift has been reporting extensively on overtourism for more than a year now, examining the impact on places like IcelandBarcelona, and Amsterdam.

We’ve been writing about the issues associated with massive numbers of tourists, but we have also sought to find solutions. On the latest episode of the Skift Podcast, we offer a conversation about the way destinations can start to address the problems of overtourism.

Our conversation first took the form of a Skift Call.

Our guest was Megan Epler Wood, director of the International Sustainable Tourism Initiative at the Center for Health and the Global Environment at the Harvard School of Public Health. Her latest book, Sustainable Tourism on a Finite Planet, was released earlier this year.

Epler Wood spoke with tourism experts Andrew Sheivachman and Dan Peltier and news editor Hannah Sampson.
