Held on 15 August, under the theme of ‘Creative Placemaking: Regenerative Approach.


Delegates attending the 11th APEC Tourism Ministerial Meeting and the 60th APEC Tourism Working Group Meeting in Bangkok from 14-20 August, 2022, had the chance to experience first-hand the event’s ‘Regenerative Tourism’ concept during the workshop on “Creative Placemaking: Regenerative Approach, Better Lives Through Better Places”.


Held on Monday, 15 August, 2022, the workshop took place at “GalileOasis”, a 40-year-old Renaissance building situated in Bangkok’s Banthat Thong area amidst the chaotic urban surroundings.

 

Designed to elevate the well-being of the local people and bring life back to the area, the project includes a gallery, theatre, and café, and serves as an ‘oasis’ that revitalises anyone passing by.

 

The half-day workshop started with welcoming remarks by the creator of the GalileOasis. This was followed by a conversation with the place maker, Noppamas Pattarakul, on the story and journey of the place making: regenerative approach moderated by Dr. Jutamas Wisansing.

 

After a walk through the place, the delegates then participated in the reflection and discussion session on key learnings pressing through a canvas, as well as sharing and exhibiting the final thoughts that reflected Regenerative Tourism.

 

The workshop was organised under the idea that tourism must be an agent of positive change, acting as a sustainable champion, and manifesting its contribution to the achievement of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Sounds like overeducated, university graduate gumph to me and not plain English that anyone attending would remotely understand.

Degenerative tourism is what they meant.  Tourism, as long as prices keep increasing across the global world will stay trimmed down.

All of it on canvas.....nothing in the flesh.

They do love their catchy phrases. 

I wonder how many follow through on them?

Obsessed with the tourism sector that is clearly overrated as an economic safety net - false dependency.

Let it go......and look for other intuitive ways to stimulate economic growth.

 

Get over it.
