Sustainable Tourism Publication Wins Award

Minnesota Sea Grant's Toward Sustainable Tourism booklet won a 2009 APEX award for publication excellence in the one-of-a-kind scientific and environmental publications category. APEX awards recognize achievements in graphic design, editorial content, and overall communications quality.

In its 40-pages, Toward Sustainable Tourism explores the ingenuity and efforts applied to sustainable tourism in Chile, New Zealand, and Australia. The results of fact-finding treks by the author and former tourism and recreation extension educator, Glenn Kreag, are described, along with insights into ways a sustainable tourism culture can be generated within a community and within a country. Graphic artist, Sally Rauschenfels, designed the free award-winning interactive Web publication, which is also available in print form from Minnesota Sea Grant for $12.

Kreag writes, "Given the number of people on the planet and their general expectations for drinkable water, breathable air, and fertile soil, the need for adopting sustainable natural resource policies and practices is unquestionable."

Toward Sustainable Tourism is available online at: www.seagrant.umn.edu/publications/T16. Printed copies are available through the Minnesota Sea Grant Program (phone: 218-726-6191, e-mail: seagr@d.umn.edu).
