World Leisure Congress Heads to Korea

ChunCheon City and the Korean Society of Leisure and Culture Studies have announced details of this year's 11th World Leisure Congress.

To be held at the Kangwon National University from 28th August to 2nd September around the theme of 'Leisure and Identities', the congress aims to bring together academics, educators, students, researchers, professionals, government officials, and representatives from non-governmental organisations in the field of leisure, recreation, tourism, and sports to discuss the academic, social, industrial, and political issues and concerns around the theme.

The Congress will include ten focused themes: Leisure Theory; Work Life Harmonisation; Leisure and Life Course; Cyber Leisure; Leisure and Globalisation; Leisure Behavior; Leisure and Society; Leisure and Tourism; Leisure and Sport; and Leisure and Culture and will provide interdisciplinary sessions in the format of plenary sessions, workshops, symposium, roundtable discussions, student sessions, general sessions(oral presentations), poster presentations, field workshops, and social program where the participants will exchange knowledge and information and find the new areas and insights for the future research and academic collaboration.

The 11th World Leisure Congress will be held in conjunction with the 1st World Leisure Games and the World Leisure Trade Show and is predicted to contribute to the transformation of ChunCheon from a tranquil lake city into a dynamic leisure city full of exciting leisure and culture activities and interactive experiences.
