Facilitating sustainable tourism in superior country: The tourism resource team

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

To enhance understanding and application of sustainable tourism, a program based on best practices across the US was developed. The Tourism Resource Team (TRT) program provides technical assistance to communities encountering an obstacle to their sustainable tourism goals. Each TRT project begins with a community-generated issue, includes site visits and meetings, as well as a presentation and report with recommendations to discuss with the community, and monitors progress with evaluation for 12 months. This article examines the TRT model and illustrates the process with work done in Two Harbors on Minnesota's North Shore of Lake Superior. Implications for other Great Lakes communities are discussed.
