    Leisure, Tourism and Environment is a collaborative endeavour of World Leisure and WU. The study is characterised by a world-wide, trans-disciplinary, critical and innovative approach. It focuses on the relationship between leisure and environment, with special attention on tourism. There is a growing awareness that leisure in all its manifestations has considerable consequences for cultural, political, technological, economical and geographical transformations throughout the world.

Leisure and tourism have been long recognised for their role in community and regional development. Furthermore, tourism and leisure developments can have major environmental impacts.The principle focus of the MSc study is on the way these processes come together to produce particular types of leisure and tourism environments.
