THE EMERGENCE OF SUSTAINABLE TOURISM – A LITERATURE REVIEW Abstract: Tourism has become a multi-billion industries, which spans from high concentration urban cities to remote islands in the Indian Ocean. But, in some cases, the economic benefits come hand in hand with negative environmental and social impacts. Several regions in the world had to overcome disastrous environmental damage or the loss of their traditions and local culture due to the growth of the tourism industry. This is the main cause for the emergence of new forms of tourism (alternative tourism, eco-tourism, rural tourism etc.) gathered under the generic term of sustainable tourism. In the present paper we will present a short history of the concept and discuss some aspects regarding the definitions of sustainable tourism.
Introduction: According to the article, many regions were facing real problems caused by tourism entrepreneurs and tourists who visited these communities. The three identified types of Impacts are: economic, social and environmental, impacts that can be both positive and negative (Fennel, 2007, Mason, 2003; Saarinen 2007). On one side, the positive impacts include: revenues for the local community, employment, the development of infrastructure (economic), the contact between different civilizations, learning new languages and about new cultures, the increase of the quality of life, promoting a global community (sociocultural) and the protection and conservation of regions/landscapes (environmental). On the other side, the negative impact includes: seasonal jobs, financial leakages and inflation (economic), losing traditions, standardization of societies, the import of bad habits, brought by the tourists (socio-cultural), pollution and expansion of the built environment in the natural one (Bac, 2013: 102). Taking into consideration those presented above, we can argue that tourism generates both negative and positive results. Therefore, a new form of tourism emerged - sustainable tourism, as an alternative to the classic mass tourism.
Conclusions Mass tourism, properly organized and controlled, can and must become sustainable. Sustainable tourism’s issues begin right from its definition. There are many positions on the meaning of this concept. There is even a debate whether or not to debate the definition of sustainable tourism (Hunter, 2002:4-5; McCool and Moisey 2008:3-4). Sustainable tourism, or rather its means of implementation have some problems, which are generated mainly by the reluctance to change by both supply and demand.
