Creating collective vision through effective public participation: Social innovation in practice
|In order to avoid the unfavorable effects of tourism, it is critical that planners understand that the enhanced welfare of the host community is the key success for a competitive destination and therefore allocate extra attention and thoughts to the lifelong benefit of the host population. Community participation and conservation activities through sustainable development and planning create appropriate development strategies that ensure positive local attitudes, conservation of local resources and more importantly, the protection and improvement of the quality of life of communities influenced by tourism development. This study propose a framework which provides a new combined effective strategy for implementation of community participation as a social innovation phenomenon.
