“Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”
That’s what the Brundtland Report said back in 1987.
Travel – especially air travel – has a not inconsiderable impact on climate change due to its emissions. And even beyond that, travel can have a significant impact on nature. The world is getting ‘smaller’, travel is becoming cheaper and places that were inaccessible and undeveloped not so long ago can suddenly be left behind on a weekend trip. Travel has become a status symbol of our generation and a matter of course. The consequences this has for the environment and also for the social structures in places that have suddenly become tourist hotspots cannot yet be fully foreseen. This creates a moral conflict, especially for people who are professionally involved in travel and tourism, as their actions encourage people to travel and thus endanger the landscapes and natural treasures they actually want to preserve. Accompanying the current photo exhibition, outdoor and adventure photographer Jana Erb (KontraPixel), travel expert Ovid Jacota and POW activist Max Isensee discuss whether it is possible to reconcile a sustainable lifestyle with the desire to travel. The central question here is: How can travel be designed in such a way that it has the least possible impact on future generations and our environment?
