CTR Seminar Series 2019 Vol.1
Research, lifelong sport, and travel: Exploring pathways to sustainability
Sport is a major attraction for tourists whether it takes the form of spectator based events, participant based events, active sport tourism or heritage sport tourism. Sustainability is a critical aspect of sport tourism attractions and the resources upon which the attraction is based. This seminar focuses on lifelong sport as a sustainable tourist attraction and its potential to contribute to sustainable development. The purposes of this seminar are: (a) to provide an overview of the expanded typology of sport tourism and lifelong sport’s position within this typology; (b) to summarize recent advances in sport tourism destinations in terms of sustainable development; and (c) to demonstrate the relevance of sport tourism across the lifespan as an agent for sustainable development in the Okinawa prefecture.
