One industry Felipe Montoro Jens is tackling is tourism. With thousands of miles of beautiful beaches, the Amazon jungle, Rio de Janeiro, and the Andes Mountains, tourists come from around the world to Brazil. However, over-tourism is a growing problem. Small Brazilian villages and fragile ecosystems can’t handle the influx of people.
A region that has been especially impacted is Santa Catarina. It has been named by travel magazines as one of the best places to visit in the world. It has a very popular theme park, award-winning hotels, and way too many people. Felipe Montoro Jens is building strategies to support tourism while reducing its negative consequences.
