Sustainable Tourism: An Urgent Pastoral Challenge
“Who benefits from Tourism in Goa?” was the million dollar question posed by the three eminent speakers from the Centre for Responsible Tourism (CRT). Fr. Maverick Fernandes, Director of Caritas-Goa, Fr. Freddy Braganza and Mr. Solomon Ranjan addressed the Seminarians of Rachol Seminary on the 7th of August in the Seminary Auditorium. They expressed the intricate aspects of Tourism in Goa and called upon the audience to be vigilant citizens to promote sustainable Tourism. A documentary Re-imaging Goa through Tourism was screened to highlight the image of Goa and the impact of Tourism on the Goan ethos. The speakers were welcomed by Fr. Rector, Dr. Aleixo Menezes and Sem. Reagan Fernandes proposed the vote of thanks.
