Perfect tourism please!

Horizons has created a special kind of travel catalogue. Why we need faraway experiences and what Alpine villages and large cities have to offer in terms of sustainability – or not.

Off on an adventure! Horizons is setting off to take an unexpectedly philosophical look at very specific types of travel: to see how Ardez – a mountain village in Engadine – plans to use tradition to secure its future, and to discover how overrun European cities are attempting to manage the crowds. It is also testing four digital gadgets for tourists.

The research magazine is also boldly climbing university career ladders and checking out how thin the air at the top is.

Other highlights include: a frank interview on ethical questions relating to animal experiments and the missionary for humane algorithms.

The latest issue of Horizons is just as diverse as research itself – and, as always, freely accessible for everyone.
