AMERICAN TOURIST SERIES

ON SCREEN PERSONALITIES

"We all want to be tourists. We love to travel. We need the revenue of tourism and yet that comes with a cost."

"Tourism, we think about it as something frivolous, something fun.  But really, it's at the core of the most important aspects of our society."

" I actually think tourism is the epitome of the new American Dream. It’s really the embodiment of American consumer culture. "

"People are starting to realize that the travel and tourism industry is at the center of a lot of the problems that have created climate change. "

"We now have an opportunity - and when I say we, I mean humanity in general -  to think about ways to do tourism better."
