This may not only lead to community disruption, but ecosystem degradation, community dislocation, and cultural commodification and evaporation.

Instructions Tourism Impacts in Indonesia Assignment: In countries around the world, endemic peoples and communities and long-established ways of life are being impacted by tourism. While tourism in locations such as Bali and Costa Rica may contribute to economic prosperity and knowledge exchange, these benefits are often attenuated by tourist’s entitlement and lack of understanding and respect for the local culture, existing practices and customs, and the environment. This may not only lead to community disruption, but ecosystem degradation, community dislocation, and cultural commodification and evaporation. While watching this video, students should critically examine the issues that have resulted from increased tourism in Bali. Specifically, students should take note of how tourism and the recreation endeavors of outsiders have influenced environmental resources, local culture and customs, and development. After speaking to the issues in Bali, students should compare how these or similar issues may be impacting their own community or area in which they personally call “home”. ***** I call Orlando, Florida home**** For example, in Montana, increased tourism, residential migration, and inharmonious planning have led to the deforestation of thousands of acres of land. The result of this has been habitat destruction, ecosystem disruption, and disagreements with local residents. After critically thinking about these issues, students should write a paper of at least 600 words, but no more than 5 pages, excluding the reference page. The format should follow APA or MLA format for all citations. For this paper, you should have no fewer than 3 outside sources There are several questions that you may use to guide your paper: There are several questions that you may use to guide your paper: How does the culture/environment/tourism industry influence Bali residents and their way of life? What factors influenced/influence my recreational activities? What are the threats to my own community related to tourism/development in the future (i.e. in Tucson, how might tourism impact water practices/sustainability)? What is subject to change in the next decade? Who has a voice in making this change? Who does not? How might tourism threaten/constrain Bali residents’ moving forward? Is there possible ways to mitigate these harms? Can Bali residents find a balance between attracting tourist and maintaining their way of life? How can the five steps to fostering a leisure dialogue and understanding with indigenous communities information presented in the book and lecture apply here? How can issues in my community related to tourism be mitigated? What resources are/were available to me and my community that are absent to Bali residents? Remember: Be creative and have fun with this paper. Really take a good look at how leisure and recreation is constructed in your community. Research the organizations offering these services. Research who has access to services and who may not. The rubric showing the format for this assignment is posted under the assignments submissions page here in D2L. An overview of the point distribution is provided below. Tourism Assignment Rubric Criteria Points Available Introduction Student outlines the issues they will discuss regarding tourism in Bali in comparison to their own community /5 Breakdown of issues in Bali Student selects and explains issues present in Bali (hint: these issues may come from the video and other outside sources related to tourism) /10 Breakdown of issues in own community Student explains parks and recreation in their own community and issues that may exist /10 Comparison/Solutions Student compares and contrast the own community with those in Bali, outlining issues that may transcend both communities, how they differ, and what role parks and recreation plays in each location.
