Tourism touches our lives in many ways. From the ways travel can transform and enrich our lives, to the impacts of tourism on host communities, tourism is deeply embedded in our culture and society. While tourism can create many benefits, it can also bring negative impacts. The Sustainable Tourism and Responsible Travel Lab (START Lab) works to ensure that tourism delivers on the promises of sustainability – protecting the environment, addressing social justice issues, celebrating heritage, and supporting economic development.

The Tourism Insights series is a series of reports and briefs designed to provide practical, actionable information for anyone interested in ensuring tourism is a force for good.
