Lincoln University co-hosted the 14th Biennial Australia and New Zealand Association for Leisure Studies Conference last week in Queenstown, with the University of Otago, and Queenstown Resort College.
The conference ran from Wednesday to Friday, with a special session for Higher Degree Research (HDR) students earlier, on Tuesday afternoon.
The conference theme was 'The Diversity of Leisure'.
Lincoln University Associate Professor Kevin Moore was on the keynote panel, discussing the topic of leisure, wellbeing and academia. He has recently published a book, ‘Wellbeing and Aspirational Culture’.
Ivor Heijnen, a recently finished Master’s student, who also won the NZ Geography Association’s award for Best Master’s thesis, and My Tran , a recent PhD student, also contributed from Lincoln, while Associate Professor Emma Stewart was one of the organisers for a session called ‘The diversity of outdoor recreation: How do we make outdoor recreation accessible?’.
