Le tourisme des jeunes à La Réunion, des années 2010 à 2020

Abstract : Quantitative data on tourism are numerous and tend to be relatively well informed. Yet there is a tourism sector in Reunion that has not been studied: it is the tourism of the youth even though it is clear that young people from 15-30 years old travel more and more and have motivations and expectations that are specific towards their spending power. To say it clearly: they represent a tourism sector in its own right, obviously interesting from an economical and social point of vue. Our research work focused first on clarifying the definition of "youth tourism" by relying on the recent English studies that have looked at the increase in activity of this tourism sector. The Word travel organisation (UNTWO) has pointed out the major increase of youth tourism in the world's tourism industry. Indeed, this sector now represents 20 % of international travels and the UNTWO estimates that in 2020 they were 300 millions young tourists, which represents a significant volume of travels within the world tourism industry. Secondly we want to analyse this tourism sector on our territory: Reunion Island. What is its share in the actual tourism dynamic? How is it expressed? What touristic programs and activities does it cover? Within the "youth sector", how much is external and how much is internal? How can we inflect the regional tourism politics to better take this sector into account? To appropriately target this unknown local sector, we set up a strategy of collecting information by using qualitative and quantitative surveys, entering the methodological frame of "research action".
