Research backgroud:
This research explores the idea of cultural values in the context of eco-tourism. The concept of Glocal is a new paradigm for globalisation in social theory that poses the idea of adopting a global way of thinking while acting local. In today�s current global environment, Glocalisation is a strategy that should be considered by firms wanting to infiltrate new emerging markets. This is principally true within the tourism industry because of its global nature. One approach that can be adopted when developing a Glocal strategy is connecting with target markets through cultural ideals. This research explores cultural orientations as antecedents of environmental sustainability values, which may translate into positive attitudes towards eco-tourism purchases.
