The course examines the conditions for travel and tourism in modern society. The students examine current tourism phenomena, such as experiential tourism, but also tourism phenomena which the students themselves identify. Furthermore, both traditional and newer forms of tourism are analysed and how this influences the development of tourist destinations and their organisation. Using future study methods, such as the scenario-technique, tourism trends in a societal context are investigated. This investigation focuses on new challenges for tourism, such as regulation based on societal demands for sustainability. Finally, glocal tourism is studied, i.e. how local and global tourism can cooperate on destination marketing, tourism networks, and attraction development.
