STAYING OR GOING? the way people travel is changing; how would this impact the tourism ecosystem?
HONG KONG,Jan.26,2022/PRNewswire-AsiaNet/--

In the new issue of its appraisal. at present, praxis starts a discussion on 

Public life has been almost halted for more than a year: countries closed, 
travel frozen.

Economies dependent on tourism have been challenged. Cultural institutions, 
fairs and congresses, travel agencies, accommodations, restaurants, and retail 
– the entire ecosystem of tourism – saw their activities 'upended' overnight.

Then, 2021's summer gave space to hope, and vacations briefly came back, until 
now when it is still uncertain of the shape travel will take.

In this fluctuating situation, many workers in industries depending on tourism 
have been retrenched, others are re-thinking their careers. They represent, a 
big portion of the 'great resignation', a phenomenon of 'mass quitting' that 
started in the us and it's expanding globally as result of multiple factors – 
including fear of contagion, unappreciated shift work for low wages, change of 
sectors and a re-found gratitude for family and private time.

On the other side of the spectrum, travellers have also been re-evaluating 
their aspirations. Social distancing, time isolated or, for the less lucky, 
work in distress, have contributed – if not to an epiphany – at least to a 
slightly new perception of life and priorities that is inevitably impacting the 
way they shape their free time, select remote work locations and vacations.

How are people – running the steeplechase that separate them from their next 
business deal, vacations, or loved ones – responding to the current situation? 
What are the immediate reactions and what would be the long-term impact?
