Collector stresses on sustainable tourism

The district collector on Tuesday called for sensitisation of students for tourism development in Aurangabad. Vikram Kumar said students should be taught significance of monuments and historical places and the need for their preservation to help build ‘Brand Aurangabad’. He was speaking at a meeting organised by the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII).

“All tourism activities – holidays, business travel, conferences, adventure travel and ecotourism – need to be sustainable. Sustainable tourism is defined as ‘tourism that respects both local people and the traveller, cultural heritage and the environment’. It seeks to provide people with an exciting and educational holiday that is also of benefit to the people of the host city,” he said.

“Though we are not missing the arc completely, we still we need to pull up our socks to encourage the sector,” he said.
