How we get there

Regenerative Tourism by 2030: Destination Queenstown, Lake Wānaka Tourism & QLDC

To develop a co-designed plan we need to hear from our members and the visitor industry, the Queenstown Lakes community, and stakeholders.

This will be a collaborative effort to ensure the tourism industry evolves in a way that puts people and place at its centre and enables a viable and regenerative tourism future by 2030.

We are encouraging people to get involved in different ways, through interviews and focused group discussions. There will also be a more creative and interactive process to help pinpoint current issues and imagine new pathways towards a regenerative tourism future. To oversee this, from planning to implementation, is an independent Industry Leaders Advisory Board

How you can get involved

Come along to one of the community events and join the conversation. We held initial idea gathering sessions in early July and have a second round of events in early August.

  • Share the Design Forum’s work with the community to develop their knowledge of, and motivation for, a regenerative visitor system.
  • Lift the community's understanding of the potential of the visitor system to enable a thriving community, environment, and economy
  • Build community momentum around the work by inspiring a new way of thinking about the visitor system.
