Organized by the French Embassy in China, the “Natural and Colorful” Sino-French Photography Photo Exhibition jointly presented by Xiong Yutong, Deputy Secretary-General of China Biodiversity Conservation and Green Deveopment Foundation(CBCGDF) and two French photographers, held its opening ceremony in Beijing on November 16. Dr. Zhou Jinfeng, secretary-general of CBCGDF, attended the opening ceremony.
Dr. Zhou Jinfeng discussed with photographers on the issue of over-tourism, and asked whether we can use pictures, videos, emerging technologies such as AR and VR to help people experience all parts of the world without being there in order to obtain a more profound and beautiful experience rather than a cursory tour for taking photo, it can also reduce the damage caused by excessive tourism to nature.
Excessive tourism exacerbates the threat of tourism to the ecological environment. Tourism can stimulate local economic development, but excessive tourism development will increase the ecological burden, which not only threatens economic development, but also deprives local people of the natural environment on which they depend. Cases of over-tourism damaging ecology and even local people’s livelihoods abound in the world and in China, causing world-renowned landscapes to fall into an ecological crisis and become a “lost paradise”.
