  • Which is more appropriate?
    As destination managers and marketers:
    we decide for citizens which stories should be told (and therefore, which ones are not told)?
    we decide for visitors which stories they should listen to?
    OR
    We broker opportunities for citizens to tell their multiple stories so that visitors can construct experiences that fit their interests
  • PEOPLE FIRST
    “Tourism linking cultures”
  • .. is accessible for people with disabilities, and respects everyone’s culture
    .. takes care of our unique and fragile natural and cultural environment
    .. has tourists interacting with Capetonians,
    visiting our favourite local places, and
    learning more about who we are, what makes us special and what concerns us.
    … does no harm to our children, women or communities
    RESPONSIBLE TOURISM
    ..sees Capetonians earning an income for their families, as owners of tourism business, workers in tourism companies, or selling products and services to the tourism industry

    .. provides Capetonians with a say in how tourism affects their lives and opportunities
