Can urban destinations remain liveable for their residents?

When we visit a destination, we also visit the community within it. The touristification of destinations and over tourism has led to cities losing their uniqueness and identities. Safeguarding the wellbeing of local communities can lead residents to be accepting of tourism and, therefore, create a more hospitable environment for visitors. Taking under consideration SDG 11 and 17 it is impossible to overlook destination communities, including residents, public and private sector stakeholders. Strong partnerships and collaborations amongst all stakeholders can create a pathway toward sustainable development.
