Sustainable Tourism Outreach
In partnership with the Office of Innovation and Economic Development, the Center for Sustainable Tourism and the North Carolina Division of Tourism, Film and Sports Development, a statewide outreach coordinator position has been created to help support and promote sustainability in the tourism industry across North Carolina. The coordinator works with all partners to facilitate sustainable tourism education, research and outreach.
As agriculture and manufacturing continue to change in North Carolina, many communities are now turning to tourism as a source of economic development, particularly in rural areas. The coordinator works to find practical and applicable solutions to the problems for the industry as a whole by working with existing programs and serving as the link between organizations and businesses.
