Can we balance the needs of the host, the environment and the visitor?

Most people live for their leisure, recreation and travel opportunities. Managing Environments for Leisure and Recreation seeks to bring together the different strands of thought that inform the management of settings, for leisure and recreation. The text shows how a positive difference can be made to such activities, by taking a balanced approach in managing for the environment and for people, both now, and into the future.

Managing Environments for Leisure and Recreation urges managers to balance the need for a systematic approach, with the need for a systemic development of an environmental management ethic. It is highly illustrated with over 50 line drawings and includes many case studies from around the world.


'Excellent … this text is recommended to university libraries and to lecturers teaching in sport, recreation and leisure as well as tourism, as a valuable teaching and student resource.' - International Journal of Tourism Research
