As cities around the world face the impacts of over-tourism and take measures to limit/regulate Airbnb and the sharing economy, Dr. Martin Falk will share his data on this issue, look at the motivations for these policies and the impacts they have had. Vancouver Island (VI) communities such as Victoria and Tofino struggle with seasonal over-tourism already and other VI communities look to proactively plan for this possibility, while other rural VI communities struggle to develop their tourism economies. Please join us for his presentations and a discussion on these issues. Students are welcome!
