Abstract: This study examines whether gender and home economy influence attitudes towards tourism and the environment. Students enrolled in senior undergraduate and first-year postgraduate tourism and hospitality subjects from eight economies are studied. Previous research on environmental attitudes has focused on either gender or home nationality, but has rarely examined the interrelationship between the two, and none has focused explicitly on attitudes to tourism and the environment. The study concluded that nationality mitigates attitudes among women much more than it does among men. The authors also conclude that general environmental attitudes are well formed, but tourism-related environmental attitudes are often contradictory.
