GEAR in national press (Materia – El País)

María Ángeles Cadarso, the GEAR’s Group co-director, has participated today in MATERIA, the scientifical section of the national newspaper EL PAÍS.

The interview is related to a recently Nature Climate Change published paper about the Global Tourism Industry impact on Climate Change.

María Ángeles has provided some Spanish carbon footprint evidence for the case of the Tourism Industry. Comments are based on some of the results shown in previously GEAR’s published papers in the Journal of Cleaner Production and in the Journal of Sustainable Tourism.

Big pleasure!

The 7th Conference of Input-Output Analysis to be held in Mérida, Yucatán, México, birthplace of the great Mayan culture. This culture actually shines thanks to the descendants who inhabit the region and who carry out productive activities that require an okol (input) as well as a Jóok’ol(output or product), according the Mayan language. Initially these villages exchange the processed products and others were transported to other markets thanks to the white roads (sak béoob). With the arrival of the Spaniards, there were changes in those societies but did not prevent the commercial flows subsist.
