More and more people are travelling more often, further and for shorter stays. What is the impact of our holidays on the built environment, the social fabric and climate change? And how can we envisage tourism that does not destroy the basis of its own existence?

Tourism has created added value, prosperity and cosmopolitanism in even the most remote regions, so halting migration. While there is also a downside, which includes crowding, major interventions in local ecosystems, and rising land prices. Tourist hotspots suffer from the onslaught of visitors, while other places are being left behind. The exhibition sheds light on key aspects of tourism, such as mobility, city tourism, climate change, the privatisation of places of natural beauty, and the change in accommodation typologies. Above all, however, the exhibition looks at the potential for transformation. Local and international examples present pioneering solutions and create an appetite for holidays that are no longer based solely on consumption and the growth paradigm.
