  14. 14. Taleb Rifai closed the event by stating that “There is nobody who is not here who should be here”. Sadly, however, most of the real “people” in tourism who Rifai was talking about during his opening address were unable to have a chance to be there, either through lack of funding or awareness, in order that their voices and stories could also be heard, shared and, ultimately, supported. For generations to come. - Catherine Mack, Ethics and tourism take centre stage, Travelmole (2011) travelmole.com/stories/1149446.php @catherinemack @TravelMole

  45. 45. You can't just throw people who come from different perspectives in a room, lock the door and come back in an hour and expect them to have solved these problems. It takes time for people to develop a shared vernacular. It takes engineered serendipity, the creation of serendipitous moments in which people can begin to decode each other's professional vernacular and build their own shared vocabulary. And it's from there that we see an emergent soup of nascent collaborations emerge. – Andrew Zolli, FutureTense - Generating innovation through the ideal of the idea abc.net.au/radionational/programs/futuretense
  46. 46. The Law of Two Feet If people find themselves in situations where they are neither learning nor contributing, they are responsible for moving to another place -- using their two feet to find a place where their participation is more meaningful. #OpenSpace
