Innovative leisure practices: Cases as conduits between theory and practice
The World Leisure Centre of Excellence at Vancouver Island University is privileged to share its third volume of Case Studies, as part of the Innovative Leisure Practices series. Our intention, with the release of this volume, is to share examples of innovative practices in leisure and to provide a platform for the exchange of ideas and discussion around these varied examples. The cases presented in the 2018 edition of Innovative Leisure Practices are varied in nature, and represent a diverse range of relevant interests and practices.
