Exploring the Capacity of tourism Activities for Indigenous Heritage Sites

Back to search results

Tourism and Indigenous communities have separate and often conflicting concerns regarding tourism activities on traditional lands. To appropriately unlock the huge potential of tourism requires in-depth understanding of both perspectives. This research aims to develop a new and eclectic set of capabilities for building sustainable tourism development in Indigenous heritage sites. A mathematical system of models of tourist flow and spending in Indigenous heritage sites will be developed. You will be part of an interdisciplinary team that will be the first to attempt to formalise the multifaceted, social, spatial and temporal tourist choices and their inter-relations using a technique known as activity-based modelling at a national scale.
