LAB Meeting “Earth Markets, Sustainability & Slow Tourism” 7/4/2021

The Heritage & Slow TourismLAB will open its doors again on 7 April. The LAB meeting will focus on Earth Markets and their contribution to sustainability and tourism. 
Burçin Kalabay Hatipoğlu, currently a visiting fellow at UNSW in Australia, and Kıvanç İnelmen, professor of management and strategy at Boğazici University in Turkey, will present their research into Earth Markets. 
The researchers will illustrate how these events contribute to the conservation of biodiversity and economic and social sustainability by supporting small farmers, building communities, fostering social justice, and preserving cultural heritage.
We will discuss the events within the framework of Sustainable Development Goals and their potential for tourism.
We are delighted that Earth Market organisers Guntars and Astride Rozite of the Straupe Earth Market in Latvia and Walter Orsi and Andrea Carpi of the Earth Market of Cairo Montenotte and the Enterprise Network “Buone Terre” in Liguria, Italy, will also join us. 
Warm regards,
