While figuring out what the ‘new normal’ should look like, it became increasingly important to re-think the set of priorities relating to tourism development at rural destinations. The major role of sustainable tourism is to find ways to minimise impacts of travel, while heritage interpretation seeks to provoke meaningful experiences for visitors, local people and sites. How can we make visitors and local people write the stories behind heritage and co-create meaningful destinations together?

In this webinar we traveled through different rural destinations where innovative meaning-making spaces built up by local people and visitors through heritage interpretation have become an opportunity for transformation and for sustainable development while preserving heritage.
