      Good morning RTSNET,

      In May 2012, the 1st International Symposium on Speaking Up and Speaking Out: Working on Social and Environmental Justice through Parks, Recreation, Tourism, and Leisure took place.  Just Leisure is the outcome from that 3-day event.  

      To learn more about how Just Leisure developed from the symposium and to view a free PDF galley containing the preface, foreword, contents, and first chapter, click on the cover below.  When the website opens, click on the cover again for the free "look inside" galley download.  

      Enjoy the book and have a great day!
      -William Anderson

      Just Leisure
      Things That We Believe In 
      Just Leisure is intended to deepen your understanding of social and environmental justice in the context of leisure. It will spur your curiosity and bring you to your learning edge-the place where you come when you are a little anxious and uncomfortable and where you can either pull back into your comfort zone and stay with the familiar or lean into your discomfort, suspend your disbelief, and open yourself to the possibility of learning something new. Just Leisure features 19 thought-provoking chapters with discussion questions and syntheses contributed by authors from the United States, Canada, and Australia. Whether you come to this work through your concern for the environment or through your desire for greater social equity among people, you come to justice work because you recognize the need for it and believe you can make a difference.
