Abstract [en]

A destination should work for a future condition of the society with the social-, economic- and ecological sustainability perspectives in mind to be considered as a sustainable destination. We do not intend to explain the impact of the social and economic aspects, but instead we will only examine how Dubai, along with the tourism industry's rapid development, works to maintain environmental sustainability in the destination. The choice of Dubai is based on the fast-growing and productive tourism developmentin the city and its concept of building, including artificial islands and tall luxurious buildings. The new projects and the concept of becoming a leading global tourism destination in the desert not only costs money, but also affect the environment in the community. In this study, we have investigated how these building projects affect the city ecologically, if there is any sustainability thinking in Dubai and how the city actively works for the environment considering the future generations. We have done this by having seven interviews with people who hold relevant qualifications in the field, and then compare the result with what the relevant theories and previous research shows. The final result was a mixture between what the selected respondents said and what previous research concluded, which shows that Dubai still has some work to do when it comes to the environment and its sustainability goal
