KORSTANJE, Maximiliano E; STRANG, David Kenneth; TZANELLI, Rodanthi  and  MORENO GARCIA, Roberto. Tourism, Risk and Climate Change: An Alternative Insight. Estud. perspect. tur. [online]. 2020, vol.29, n.1, pp.214-227. ISSN 1851-1732.

The present short piece interrogates on the intersection of climage change, which results from a much deeper ecological crisis, and the tourist system. Based on the contributions of Tim Ingold, a British anthropologist who introduced the idea of "the relational perspective", we lay the foundations towards a new (alternative) understanding of the issue (for the years to come). We make a critical reading of the methodological problems and limitations of the economic-centered paradigm to grasp the nature of climate change beyond the materialist lens. Though our future remains uncertain, no less true is that -echoing Krippendorf- to what extent tourism is part of the solution or the problem depends strictly on the possibilities the founding values of capitalist society to be sustainably transformed.

Keywords : Climate change; Ecological crisis; Tourism; Tourist destination; Tourist consumption; Tim Ingold.
