Students have to post one question related to the topic by Tuesday midnight, respond to five other students questions between Tuesday midnight and Thursday midnight, and conclude/wrap up the issue/question between Thursday midnight and Friday midnight.
and those 5 questions are:
1) The artice I found discussed the negative impacts that voluntourism can sometimes have on destinations.  The author and their interviewees are frustrated that volunteers are being sent to locations and assigned to difficult jobs that the volunteers are completely unskilled in.  The author argues that there should a quality of standard when choosing volunteers, which I agree with.  Some volunteers arrive to actually help and make a difference, while others are there to exploit and harm the community and environment.  Do you think that voluntourism needs a quality of standard when choosing volunteers as well as a regulatory body?

2)Starwood started the popular program "Make a Green Choice" a few years ago. You can opt into the program at check-in or by placing the door hanger on the outside of your door. The program can save 50 gallons of water per room per night. That is such a significant difference that it was well recieved by eco tourism critics. It is also an efficiency booster for the entire housekeeping department. Participants get SPG points added to their accounts when they check out.

 

Why is this program good or bad? How can Starwood improve on this program?

What are the best actions needed to take places for countries to be protected from future Ebola outbreaks? This has been an ongoing issue even though some of it has been contained, its still out there. Ebola is affecting countries that don't have a strong enough system to take care of this issue which is leading them to a decrease in their tourism industry. Do you think that it is time for allied countries to step in and help to not only prevent this disease from spreading but to help build back up their economy/tourism industry?
4)In the Topic 4 readings, we read a chapter on the environmental impacts of tourism. One of the issues presented was roads/traffic and roadkill. Several highways are combating this issue by building wildlife overpasses/underpasses. Washington to Build Animal Overpass on I-90 discusses the planned overpass for bears, elks, foxes, etc in the state of Washington. You can also check out some really cool images of theses types of overpasses/underpasses in other states and countries.
Question: There can be a lot of positive outcomes from creating wildlife overpasses; what could be some possible negative impacts/outcomes?
5)Greece is already struggling from a vicious financial crisis and now locals and officials are worried about the migration crisis of Afghan migrants to the island of Lesbos, a popular destination for Europeans and Greeks alike.
My question to you, is with the current financial crisis Greece is already experiencing, it now has to confront this migration crisis. How do you think it will effect Greece?  And what would you suggest for the potential overpopulation- would these migrants have a biophysical impact on the waters or sustainability for Greece?

I think voluntourism needs a quality of standard when choosing volunteers as well as a regulatory body.  Skilled volunteers with background knowledge of the job/s expected of them can prove helpful in the progress of tourism and they can also give a positive picture or create a positive impression on the minds of the tourists. Development of the tourist destinations will be faster only if the regulatory body and volunteers are experienced and skilled to handle their duties and jobs assigned to them. Inefficient volunteers may not prove helpful, but may become an obstacle in the development of tourism and the main purpose will not be solved of promoting tourism if unskilled volunteers or regulatory bodies are employed.

I think this program is good and unique because it is innovative and can help in conservation. It does not harm anyone and can prove useful in the long run. There are no hidden costs and the benefits can be reaped by the guests and the hosts, and also it can prove beneficial for the society. I think Starwood can improve on this program by including areas where further energy can be conserved, such as minimum electricity usage, or conscious water usage, or switching off unnecessary lights, or any such relevant schemes where energy conservation is given prime importance. The award points can be increased for the involvement of all the guests in the make a green choice program.
