NaTour Principal Quoted in Recent Article

NaTour Communications principal Jeremy Garrett was recently quoted in the Puget Sound Business Journal on the topic of the rise of community-based and volunteer tourism. Visit http://seattle.bizjournals.com/bizwomen/seattle/content/story.html?story_id=1173294 for the full article.

The article is a good description of the Seattle-based tour operator Crooked Trails (http://www.crookedtrails.com), with whom Jeremy has worked in the past.

In perhaps one of his best newspaper quotes ever, Jeremy says: "People want to do more than sit on the beach and drink mai tais. They want to learn."

New Book Available on Integrated Rural Tourism

NaTour Communications associate Todd Comen has just released the book Integrated Rural Tourism: Weaving Low Impact Tourism Into the Economic Fabric of Rural Communities.

Integrated rural tourism (IRT) combines the principles and practices of ecotourism but adds into the mix the life patterns of the rural community. This is not a new approach to socioeconomic development in rural areas, but up until now has been used in limited circumstances. IRT forms a complex web that features agriculture and rural life patterns as the foundation of the tourist experience. In its ideal form, this tourism model can play a prominent role in encouraging economic prosperity at a local and regional level because it encourages and supports the links within a diversified local economy. It is, by its very nature, low impact both on natural areas and on the human community.

This integrated approach is emerging over time as our awareness of the inseparability of human life and the preservation of earth

Hi, Jerme

I hope the event went well. Are there any YouTube videos, Flickr galleries or other Web 2.0 perspectives on the Caribbean Tourism Summit?
