Center for Responsible Travel (CREST), Puntacana Resort & Club hosted a conference focused on the issues of climate change and coastal tourism. The Conference, put on by the Center for Responsible Travel (CREST), brought together over 30 experts in the fields of oceanography, marine policy, tourism, and sustainability.
Over the next three days, panels of experts were grouped together and presented on topics like food, climate change, rising sea levels, as well as many others. Each group stated that the problems are already upon us and it is now time to take action.
