Tiqets, a leading booking partner for museums and attractions, has produced a free ebook exploring how museums and attractions can work to become more sustainable.
Sustainability is a key issue in the tourism and attractions industry, with a 2020 report showing that one in two museum visitors think that it should be an important focus. And this will only grow – among Gen Z respondents this figure rose to almost four in five.
To help operators meet this need, Tiqets has brought together 10 strategies for making attractions and museums more environmentally sustainable, including four things to do right away.
Working towards more sustainable attractions
So, how can tourism be more sustainable? By downloading the ebook, attractions can discover both long-term strategies and quick wins, to start them on their sustainability journey. It also features real examples of how other museums and tourist attractions have worked to become more sustainable, for instance, Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum:
“We’re looking for more partnerships in order to make a difference for the city of Amsterdam and more sustainable museums for the Netherlands,” says Karen Keeman, Head of Facilities, Rijksmuseum, speaking on the importance of the issue.
“For museums and attractions, investing in environmental sustainability initiatives is not just about going along with the zeitgeist, and at the same time, it gives returns way beyond cost savings,” adds a spokesperson from Tiqets.
“As culture-creators and history-makers, museums & attractions can inspire a huge shift to a sustainability-minded world. Your venue is in a position to make – and motivate – real change.
Since 2014, Tiqets has worked to make culture more accessible, helping people discover and enjoy museums and attractions around the globe, and making booking simple. To download its latest ebook on sustainability for museums and attractions, please click here.
