Unbalanced tourism growth, recently very often associated with term „overtourism“, has become a major concern for an increasing number of destinations as tourism numbers continue to grow which can result in negative impacts of all types on the local residents. Sustainable and responsible tourism development and visitor management requires effective, cooperative commitment and coordination between site management and all relevant public agencies and private enterprises. Unbalanced tourism growth is a destination very specific phenomena. This summer school addresses the complex phenomenon of overtourism in the EU. It will cover analysis of the root causes, drivers and environmental, economic and socio-cultural impacts of overtourism at destination level. By focusing on a set of case studies, the summer school will identify best practice solutions, successfully applied by tourism destinations in the EU.
