All over the world experts, residents, and cities have been advocating alternatives to the devastating impacts of overtourism on local territories, societies, economies and global climate.

As COVID-19 pandemic radically hits global tourism and the immediate environmental benefits become evident it is our unique opportunity to demand immediate response and fundamental redefinition of tourism worldwide.
