Travel And The Fear of The Journey

Fourth episode in Season II *About the episode For this episode we will explore our travel popular culture from the perspective of travel anxiety. Our travel partner for this destination is author Gabi Finck from Germany who after a personal journey with anxiety and panic attacks that were particularly connected to travel wrote a sensitive and comprehensive book Mit Mut im Herzen und Angst im Gepäck von 2021 about her own experiences including advice for those who may feel limited by same symptoms. This conversation does not stay on the theoretical level but dives into the personal story, so this is where we begin Episode 10.

Travel And Continuous Music

Third episode in Season II *About the episode Our next stop in the second season of On The Green Track is to explore  what sustainable development looks like on a global scale. Together with Continuous Music composer and pianist Lubomyr Melnyk we will discover the connections between travel and music. 
This may not be a clear connection at first, but together with our guest, we expand the notion of travel to not only belong to a tourism industry but to be an almost instinct experience or surrender to the world’s beauty through art.
 This conversation was recorded prior to the current critical situation in Ukraine and as a sad coincidence Lubomyr Melnyk’s reflections upon being Ukrainian seem more relevant and thought-provoking than ever 🇺🇦.

Travel And Sustainable Justice

Second episode in Season II *About the episode Our next stop in the second season of On The Green Track is to explore what sustainable development looks like on a global scale. Together with Dr. Renuka Thakore we will dive into the difficult, but necessary, question of: how to ensure a fair and just transition towards a less resource extractive and more regenerative tourism sector. This journey will make you revisit many points of critique raised in episode 7 by professor in economics and degrowth Timothée Parrique, because some of the points of critique will be the solutions in this episode. So again, we are back at trying to understand what 'sustainability' means in tourism. At this stop on our journey, we may not find the answer by looking at the economic systemic structures and issues, but instead we are encouraged to look at the individual's responsibility and options of retaking power. Our guest for this episode Dr Renuka Thakore is the founder of the Global Sustainable Futures: Progress through Partnerships Network and holds a PhD in built environment practices in sustainability. Dr Renuka Thakore advises and lectures in Environmental Management Systems and supports the delivery of Sustainable and Innovative Practices.

Travel And The Road To Degrowth

First episode in Season II *About the episode We begin our second season by arriving at the destination: how to reorientate our economic system. This journey will take you wide around the topic of degrowth and reconceptualize a tourism industry and its economic sentiments. We take a look at all the structures around the tourism industry and use our imagination to picture: how can the industry give more back than what it takes? Our guest for this episode is professor in economics with the specialization in degrowth Timothée Parrique, who holds a PhD in economics from the University of Clermont Auvergne in France and the Stockholm Resilience Centre from 2019 titled “The political economy of degrowth”. **Also, we are trying a different format for this episode: so the conversation is not divided to into two parts despite its length, in case you prefer me dividing up the conversations into parts let me know and I will keep that in mind for the following episodes of Season II. Follow professor Timothée Parrique's work on: Website: https://timotheeparrique.com/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/timparrique?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5EauthorLinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/timoth%C3%A9e-parrique-7b593450/?originalSubdomain=fr

Find the first episode published Oct. 10th. on your favorite podcast platform! 🌲  LAST EPISODE FOR THE OTGT FALL SEASON 🍁 *About the episode Can we encounter nature from multiple perspectives?

Travel And The Concept Of Sustainability

In this episode, we explore what 'sustainable' travel actually means and some of the key features, which seem important for the sustainable tourism sector such as: storytelling, identity and the green traveller as a consumer. Instead of focusing on what is "real" sustainable travel and tourism, we explore how the sustainable tourism sector is trying to implement new practices and change the industry from the inside out. Together with our guest Louise de Hemmer from Green Destinations, we ask the question:   Does sustainable travel make us travel abroad less or has it become an unescapable way of forming an identity today?

The  episode is divided into two parts and is a step further on our Green  Track. From starting with talking about concrete tourism and  travel  experiences together with Thor from the Once Upon A Saga project, we now  move to the more theoretical and artistic realm. Based on Joseph Mallord William Turner's landscape painting "Snow Storm:  Steam-Boat off a Harbour's Mouth" (1842), we discuss why we travel and  how our relationship to  nature, which is an important asset when  travelling for most, is shaped  by cultural discourses, trends and also  urbanization, which we during  the COVID-19 pandemic are being  confronted with and impacted by in  various of contradicting ways.

What is Mobility?

Welcome on the Green Tracking Series! In this mini-pod, we explore concepts coming up On The Green Track. For this mini-episode, we look at what is meant by the term ‘mobility’ in Episode 1: Travel and The Complexities of Mobility - a conversation with Thor from the Once Upon A Saga. So join us on this micro-adventure and explore for yourself how you understand the term. About: This series takes up concepts touched upon On The Green Track conversations. In this way, it becomes more transparent what is meant by the terms used, as these can have different definitions and are applied differently in the tourism and travel sector. For example: you might book an eco hotel on your holiday destination and then you read how sustainable tourism research defines 'eco' tourism and suddenly this definition and how 'eco' is applied in the hotel do not line up. OTGT: On the Green Track is a podcast for you who loves to travel or work within the travel sector and wish to explore new ways of thinking and redefining tourism  industry in a time, in which the sector needs to change faster than ever. In this pod, we look at the term ‘travel’ from an intersectional  and philosophical point of view, so if you want to understand better the why and the how behind our needs of travel, then join us on this  journey and learn how far we can actually go.

Travel And The Complexity Of Mobility

1) In this episode, we discuss the term 'mobility,' which refers to the ability to move or be moved freely and easily. In case you want a more clear definition of the term 'mobility' in the context of tourism please check out the first episode in the Green Tracking Series, in which we explain the concept further. For this episode, Thor and I discuss these complexities and the fine border  between travelling for holidays and fleeing from a crisis. In the  tourism sector, the debate about mobility and the tourism sector's responsibility within this, are often silenced. Therefore, I hope you  will find this interesting in order to think further about how the  tourism sector could begin to engage itself more actively and thereby  give visitors a choice to help and to become aware of how mobility is  defining and shaping everyone's lives.
