at the Lecture Theatre 2 (LT2), University of Malta Msida Campus
Battle of Ideas Europe satellite event to be held at the University of Malta: Overtourism: Is it over for the growth of tourism? This is the question that will be debated in an event to be held on the Tuesday 23 October at the Lecture Theatre 2 (LT2), University of Malta Msida Campus from 18:00 to 20:00.
And what about Malta? Tourist numbers grew sharply following the introduction of low cost airlines in 2005 and increased popularity of AirBnB. Incoming tourists number four times our resident population. Is it an issue? What are the impacts, especially on our precious historic areas? Is it only tourism to blame? Should we consider imposing limits on tourist numbers or do we need to focus on better management of our tourist hotspots? Is a debate on overtourism relevant to Malta?
