The English origins of geotourism (as a vehicle for geoconservation) and their relevance to current studies

Auteur :
HOSE, T.A.

Description :
This paper contextualises the recognition of geotourism concept. It provides the summary of the development of early modern geoconservation in England as a necessary precursor to the inception, recognition and development of geotourism. It notes the evolving geotourism research approach and its impact on its understandings, definitions and models; the whole is contextualised within the framework of special interest tourism. A new geotourism definition is provided and a plea made for its original rationale and observations to be included in studies elsewhere in Europe. - (IKR)
