Many of the challenges identified below are relevant to more than one of the aims of sustainable tourism, with a combination of economic, social and environmental implications.A critical objective for tourism sustainability in Europe is to ensure that the destination management process fully embraces sustainability objectives and principles.This study has set out the key challenges for making European tourism more sustainable, mechanisms for tackling them and the responsibilities of the main players.
