Sustainable tourism and sustainable development is a theme in Santa Fe 
that is extremely pertinent. Mayor Koss and Dr. Ortego, former President 
of SFCC, discussed the need for our city to look at the principles of 
sustainable tourism last year. Crucial to this understanding is the 
importance of following the triple bottom line: people, planet and 
profit. Guiding an industry based on how it impacts people, the 
environment and the revenue stream creates a better world that is more 
sustainable. When people visit New Mexico they have a chance to learn, 
experience and participate in this unique and rich milieu.

We depend on tourism as an industry and the way we address this powerful 
economic force can make all the difference. Santa Fe is a showcase for 
many things including art, culture and progressive ideas, some of which 
are sustainable living and local, organic food production. The Santa Fe 
Farmer's market is a perfect example of collaboration between farmers, 
businesses, the city and non profits teaming up to produce a weekly 
cornucopia of fresh food and Santa Fe's primo social hot spot.

Tourism fluctuates between high season and low season making it hard to 
keep employees and income during the low season. So what can we do 
during the low season that could have aggregate value in the long run? 
In addition, how can we improve finances by reducing waste, increasing 
efficiency, reducing the amount of inputs and increasing yield? Eco 
tourism touches on the idea that we must reduce the negative impact of 
the visitor on the place visited. This perspective is attractive to 
youth all over the world and a place of unity amongst world citizens. It 
is only the beginning and we must go beyond eco tourism to sustainable 

It is for this reason that when an industry like tourism commits to ZERO 
waste the impact is enormous. Like ants or even bees, critters we love, 
tourists come and go to Santa Fe by the millions cross pollinating 
ideas, customs and initiatives. Creating a dynamic synthesis of 
traditions and the possibility for innovation and creativity is one of 
the benefits.

Tourism in itself offers a series of challenges and opportunities to 
reduce the carbon footprint. These opportunities can be explored in 
Santa Fe with the Carbon Economy Series on January 11,12,14 2013 at 
Santa Fe Community College. Maria Boccalandro PhD and Daniel Mirabal 
from Arete Consulting Group will address the challenges in the intensive 
Sustainable Tourism and Sustainable Development workshop. Look at our
