Research question

I am interested in researching about the influence of green urbanism in STD. I first came up with this idea of crossing this two disciplines (sustainable tourism and green urbanism) when I heard about Fano’s policy to avoid overbuilding in the island.

After reading some papers more or less related to the topic I’m making this RQ:  How does ‘green urbanism’ contribute to sustainable tourism development?

This is the structure of the paper so far:

1) Introduction

2) RQ  and methodology

3) Literature review: What is ‘green urbanism’ and what does it have in common with sustainable tourism.

4) Analysis of therole of green urbanism in the different approaches that touristic locations have implemeted towards sustainability.

5) Evaluation

6) Conclusion

7) Future research

    Interesting focus, where local food could also be an issue. The challenge may be to stay focused on tourism (as opposed to overall SD).
