When and Why It Appears the CST?
Sustainability as a model for development raises the need to satisfy the current requirements of society without compromising the right of future generations to meet theirs. In other words, this means that the country’s development cannot rely on the excessive exploitation of resources (natural, cultural, social, etc.) to the point of exhausting or destroying them, trying to meet the current needs of the population (food, housing, health, employment, etc.). The resources available now are the same that future generations of this country will have to meet their own needs.
As for tourism, sustainability means a way of developing the economic activity that may solve the current risky industrial situations and avoid growth dynamics, which are creating economic, social, cultural and ecological imbalances.
