Synopsis: Adventure Programming and Travel for the 21st Century mirrors the growing interest and participation in adventure travel over the past century and reflects the varied and diverse adventure industry and profession. This text explores contemporary adventure issues, trends, concepts, principles, and programs across this extensive and diverse industry. Included are discussions of hot topics such as climate change, risk management, technology, sustainability, and conservation; issues that are confronting the world in new and challenging ways. We aim to explicitly link the adventure progression to the environmental and sustainability fields of study and suggest a forward-thinking approach to the adventure profession from a range of perspectives. This is achieved through 19 key chapters and 40 related case studies. Information across the chapters and case studies is synthesized to provide a coherent picture of key trends in the
adventure profession. The editors invited many authors from around the world to provide the reader with a truly global picture of adventure programming and adventure travel, from theoretical and applied perspectives. The chapter authors were invited as they are all key researchers and authors in their respective disciplines and the case study authors represent experts in a particular academic field or are practitioners or professionals working in the adventure field and industry. The inclusion of the professional's perspectives is a unique aspect of this edition as in many cases they present real-life case studies that reflect the day-to day realities of the adventure profession. Many of the case studies written by commercial adventure tour operators or adventure program managers also provide practical ideas and implications for practice. The book is structured around key skills, understanding, and knowledge required by undergraduate students entering the adventure profession, whether as a commercial adventure travel guide, adventure therapist, adventure activity leader or adventure educator. This book is aimed at a wide range of undergraduate students studying adventure tourism, adventure therapy, adventure education, therapeutic recreation, and outdoor recreation or related fields. The book serves as an important text for those students and a useful resource for faculty and professions in the field. We expect this volume will also be useful to others such as not-for-profit organizations, adventure recreation directors, commercial adventure travel operators, and government agencies.
