Word Heritage Sites as soft tourism destinations – their impacts on international arrivals and tourism receipts

natural, economic and socio-cultural environment without an unacceptable decrease in the quality of visitor satisfaction. Sustainable tourism is a form of tourism that, in contrast to mass tourism, keeps the caused damage low, and well below the carrying capacity of the destination area. It has been increasingly popular recently, and is widely discussed in contemporary tourism literature (for references see, e.g., Weaver et al., 1999 ). The term “soft tourism” is used – especially in Europe – similarly to “sustainable tourism”. The expression gained popularity in

Arpaia ( Arpaia et al., 2018 ) investigates other institutional features that have shaped worker mobility in Europe and its responsiveness to the current point of the business cycle. He confirms that labour migration has become increasingly responsive to unemployment after the adoption of the common currency. Although there is broad empirical work on the field of drivers

Municipal waste recycling in big cities in Poland in the context of ecologisation

. 2012 poz. 645), which defined that by 2020 recycling level and reuse processes for fractions such as paper, glass, plastic and metal should amount to 50%. Non-compliance with the requirements would result in a stiff penalty, and Poland should therefore develop recycling technologies ( Hryb, 2015 ).
