Program Overview

What Liverpool Hope University says about their program:
" Environmental change particularly that associated with climate change poses one of the most important environmental challenges facing the world today. Tourism and tourism development may be directly affected by aspects of environmental change. The environmental impact of people on the physical and ecological world is also of significant concern. The expansion of tourism into environmentally sensitive areas is an example of the potential impact of people on the natural world."
