Growth In Global Tourism Analyzing world patterns CGG3O1 Ms. Percy
What’s going on and why? One of the fastest growing industries in the world In 2011, worldwide tourism receipts surpassed USD$1 trillion
Graphing Change Let’s see how much change has occurred… Analyze the growth patterns in the global tourism industry by creating a bar or plot graph that compares tourist arrivals by region in 1990 to 2011. When you are finished, analyze your graph and use it to answer these questions in your notebook: 1)What pattern(s) do you notice on your graph? 2)What national and/or international social, economic and/or political factors may explain what you see? 3)Based on current social, economic and political circumstances, predict what your graph may look like in 2030 and provide an explanation. Compare your prediction to the WTO prediction and identify similarities and differences. Record in your notes.
Why the growth? GROUP THINK In your group, use your graphs and brainstorm a list of reasons that would explain why global tourism has increased so much since the beginning of the 20 th century.
