Impact of climate change oppresses NZ tourism

 Saturday, November 12, 2022 


The leaders of tourism are struggling with their future as the climate change impacts and disruptions have become more widely felt of late.

Yesterday, they all met in Hamilton to take part in the annual Tourism Summit Aotearoa, to talk about climate change adaptation and innovation.

Thrilled and even more optimist, the leaders of tourism have been shaking free from the debris of the past gloomy years.

In 2020, Tourism Summit Aotearoa was last arranged in person, and the industry held close the chance to catch up once again, with MC Jenny-May Clarkson having to make a way out to song to get people into their seats.

However once they were seated, the focus was on the tough days ahead.

Rebecca Ingram, the Tourism Industry Aotearoa chief executive, said that it was an unavoidable truth for the sector.

It was very important to do as much as they could to bring equilibrium to the flight to Aotearoa that the visitors from abroad must take, she said.

The climate change related realities were becoming more and more obvious, comprising the famous West Coast glaciers retreating, Ingram said.

In the last 10 years, it has decreased almost one kilometer. Yet she firmly thinks that they still have opportunities here within these challenges.

If sustainability questions how they can make a better and much improved tourism, regenerative asks how they can make New Zealand better.
