Audit Wales wants to hear from tourism businesses in and around Wales’ National Parks about the challenge of managing sustainable tourism.
Wales' three Welsh National Parks are internationally important examples of how working landscapes can be protected. The concept of a protected landscape – a protected area within which people live and work – is of increasing importance in global conservation terms.
However, we know that climate change is happening, and we know that it is caused by our actions. One important way of reducing our impact on the climate and ease the pressures on the world's vulnerable places, people and wildlife is Sustainable Tourism.
This does not mean stopping tourism. Rather, it means delivering tourism in ways that protect and enhance our natural environment as much as possible.
As businesses working in and around the National Parks, it's important that your voice is at the heart of our research. We want to hear from you to find out how the National Park Authorities:
- are working to support sustainable tourism;
- engage and involve you in their work on sustainable tourism; and
- support you to become more sustainable.
The survey should take less than 5 minutes to complete, please submit your response by 20 December 2021.
