Sustainable development and the application of its principles to tourism are more important now than ever. Tourism industry leaders must be stewards over the environmental and socio-cultural resources upon which their institutions depend, and educating future tourism leaders with these principles is essential. To respond to this need, in 2000, a group of educators, researchers and industry leaders formed an international consortium to address this key philosophical shift in tourism development. This group, called Business Enterprises for Sustainable Tourism Education Network (BEST EN) is an innovative group committed to knowledge creation about sustainable tourism development and to disseminating that knowledge to students through a series of educational activities. The educational chapters presented in this volume are one representation of their collective work.
