Tourism in the climate change era

The recent years were the hottest ever recorded and more and more meteorological cataclysms show how climate change is no longer a future hypothesis, but a present phenomenon. The transition from one habitat to another is forcing the whole society to adapt itself, to migrate or to resist, causing artificial mutations for the environment.
This project aims to explore how the tourism industry is reacting to the effects of global warming, i.e. the decline of snowfall, desertification, polar ice melt, and rising sea levels. Between 2015 and 2021, this concept gave rise to four separate projects around the world, which are collected here in the following books: Snow Land – situated in the Italian Dolomite Alps; Water Tour – a research conducted in Palestine and Israel; Iceberg Souvenir– spanning Canada, Greenland, and Iceland; and finally, Lost Paradise, set in the Republic of Maldives.
