Practices for Future Transitions
Chapter 5 emphasises how the practices of packing accentuate the complexity involved in everyday movements, yet connect us to tourism cultures and ideals of global mobility. It argues that these ‘everyday’ practices raise awareness of how individuals connect to the challenges of the Anthropocene era, increasing tourism and migration flows, material agency, and environmental concerns. It argues that developing a collective subjectivity has the potential for finding alternative ways to inhabit and participate in communal environments and mobile situations. By acknowledging and valuing experiences that are ‘collective’, tourists become more open to alternative, creative, and collaborative forms of mobility.
