The North Coast Tourism Management Network (Oregon) hosted a virtual conference to discuss sustainable tourism strategies on January 13.

According to a report, participants heard a presentation by Serena Bishop Gordon, sustainability manager at Visit Bend.

“If you aren’t part of the solution; if you aren’t in the arena trying to change the rules of the game, nothing is going to change,” Gordon said.

“So many people in the state of Oregon who work in tourism and in this industry are doing just that. That [involvement] is how we are going to make a collective change to create more sustainable destinations and sustainable travel,” Gordon added.

The gathering was attended by 25 community leaders from the tourism, small business, transportation, conservation, nonprofit, and local government sectors, which engaged in a robust discussion on how tourism can help sustain the North Coast.

The Network is committed to tourism sustainability with initiatives such as stewardship messaging and public restrooms toolkits as well as ongoing action teams that encourage positive stewardship behavior, promote car-free transportation options, champion the value of tourism for coastal communities and businesses, and enhance outdoor recreation opportunities.

The next meeting is on February 24, 10 a.m. The monthly gatherings provide an opportunity to learn from partners with a diverse variety of expertise both within and outside of the region.

The North Coast Tourism Management Network seeks to enhance healthy, collaborative, sustainable relationships between coastal visitors, residents, businesses, and the environment. The Network communicates the value of tourism for communities while striving to minimize negative impacts of visitation and help guests become excellent stewards of the North Oregon Coast.
