Three rising tourism directions and climate change: Conceptualizing new opportunities
Geological, archaeological, and industrial tourism can serve efficiently for the communication of climate change knowledge to the public, which is a literacy function. Importantly, each of these directions deals with information on a particular time slice, and thus, taking these tourism directions together delivers climate change knowledge very logically. Thematic, climate change-oriented parks (e.g., on the basis of geoparks) can combine geological, archaeological, and industrial tourism activities in order to sufficiently increase public awareness and to correct the public perception of climate change. Correct interpretation and availability of trained interpreters are the main challenges.
