Throughout the month of August, experts from around the globe have been discussing the latest ideas for supporting sustainable tourism through private and public funding. They won't be using any unsustainable forms of transportation to get to this conference--instead, they've been meeting online a-la-salon at Planeta.com. Professionals in the field are discussing the best way to finance sustainable tourism and what its future may be. The conference will produce both a review of current funding sources and a public archive. Anyone can view the discussion online--keep a close watch out for the final comments and proposals that will be posted this week--or peruse the list of recommended and background reading.
