Research and Exchange Outputs: The relationships between food sovereignty, cultural sustainability and rural tourism
By: Danielle Robinson
This interdisciplinary research explored how rural tourism stakeholders understand and mobilize the interrelationships between cultural sustainability and food sovereignty and to what purpose. Wine and food tourism is one of the fastest growing rural tourism niches and intersects with critical cultural sustainability issues such as local food systems, food sovereignty and agricultural land use, therefore, it is particularly important to explore cultural sustainability in food and wine tourism contexts. By gaining a better understanding of the relationships between rural food tourism, food sovereignty, cultural sustainability, and the supporting policy conditions, the positive contributions of rural tourism can be maximized.
