Writing Sustainable Tourism

Diana Jarvis, Mike Unwin, Simon Willmore
Sustainable travel


Firstsite, Lewis Gardens, High Street
Colchester, CO1 1JH
£5 (27 yrs and under)

We are very sorry but due to unforeseen circumstances this event has had to be cancelled. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Is your safari self-indulgent or the last defence of the big five, exploitation of the locals or a way to offer them new opportunities?

Travel is the world’s largest industry and, some would say, one of its most destructive. Writer, Mike Unwin, journalist, Simon Willmore, and photographer, Diana Jarvis, all members of the British Guild of Travel Writers, discuss the delicate juggling act that balances global tourism, the preservation of the planet and the words and images that appear in newspapers, magazines and online.

Chair: Tharik Hussain
Panellists: Diana Jarvis, Mike Unwin, Simon Willmore
