WEBINAR: Creating Equitable and Sustainable Urban Heritage Tourism Districts

Thursday, August 18th
11:00 AM - 12:30 PM
CM|1.5 (E|1)
Hosted by Smart Growth Online
 
Urban (heritage) tourism has become an important segment of the global tourism market, offering opportunities for socioeconomic growth and development, especially in former industrial cities. Heritage tourism districts also have become a popular investment for cities seeking to boost the local economies of historically disenfranchised neighborhoods.

When it comes to equitable development and environmental sustainability, however, urban heritage tourism efforts warrant a detailed inspection. Heritage tourism efforts do not necessarily reap economic benefits for all residents and business owners and can lead to negative health, environmental and sociocultural impacts. 
 
Join the Smart Growth Network for “Creating Equitable and Sustainable Urban Heritage Tourism Districts” as Dr. Corinna Moebius and Dr. Graylyn Swilley-Woods draw upon their original research and experiences in heritage tourism districts to outline the steps needed to help these districts and destinations achieve long-term success.
 
Participants of the live webinar are eligible for 1.5 AICP CM credits and one Equity credit (live attendance required). To register complete and submit the form below.
