This edited volume contains papers presented at the Freiburg2012 international workshop with the same title.

Review:
The volume has been reviewed rather positively in the Journal of Sustainable Tourism. Amongst others, the reviewer concluded that it “is relevant for the approaches adopted, the insights discussed, and the repercussions of tourism within the increasingly crucial debate over climate change and sustainable development. In particular, it is recommended for postgraduate studies on tourism mobilities, spatial planning, and environmental studies focusing on the performative trends and futures of travel behaviour in the medium and long terms. This contribution, therefore, should be used as basis for a more critical review of the contemporary paradoxes of the tourism industry in the light of the evident environmental inefficiency of the tourist system as a whole” (Amore, 2014, p. 3).
