mounted a case for leisure as a human right at the 12th Biennial
ANZALS Conference in Adelaide 2015, we now explore leisure as an agent for
social change. The 13th Biennial ANZALS Conference calls on all to review leisure as a social change
agent at individual, community and societal levels in a rapidly changing world.
This event will seek to build on the long tradition of ANZALS conferences by asking presenters and attendees to reflect on and discuss both the positive and negative roles leisure plays across a number of significant global, regional and local issues. The conference will provide an avenue for the
dissemination of leisure studies research that cuts across a variety of domains
such as business, health, the environment, tourism, events, education and disability
as well as transport, planning, policy, place management and infrastructure.
ANZALS arranges a leisure studies conference to be hosted somewhere in either Australia or New Zealand every two years, usually during odd numbered years. For information about past conferences please click here.
