This section will provide summaries of research carried out to support the Responsible Tourism and Destination Net Zero activities

Research was carried out with our communities and visitors in Scotland, exploring people's attitudes towards:

  • Tackling climate change
  • Travelling more sustainably
  • Adopting sustainable behaviours whilst on holiday

The perceived role of tourism and the impact of tourism on local communities
