Find out the ECM Long Thinker Catalogue! As part of the initiative #aNewTomorrow, we invited 10 Long Thinkers – experts in their fields, industry influencers and purposeful changemakers – to help us think further ahead, beyond crisis and towards a New Tomorrow for tourism and destinations. We’ve decided to compile them all in this catalogue and share them anew for a bit of summer reading.
Since the first launch of our Long Thinker article series in mid-May 2020, much has happened – in fact, sometimes it almost feels like the world is overturned multiple times a day. Meanwhile, destinations have in several instances also purposefully turned the situation into a time for reflection and change. In cities and destinations across the world, corona lockdown has been spent reflecting and discussing not just what a new tomorrow will look like, but also how they want it to look like – actively shaping their recovery to rebuild the city and the city’s tourism in new ways.
We hope the contributions of our Long Thinkers over the past months may provide inspiration and input to these many “build back better” conversations taking place in destinations right now and after the summer, and so, we’ve decided to compile them all in this catalogue and share them anew for a bit of summer reading.
