This year’s theme builds on the previous events in Scotland, with a focus on the human-nature interactions which occur during adventurous activities outdoors. Such experiences may be considered from a practical, commercial point of view, or interrogated through philosophical, sociological or educational lenses. At its heart the purpose of this conference is to gather together the many perspectives on outdoor activity for its numerous purposes, and to consider how best to understand people’s recreation in these wild places.

This is the third annual adventure conference, following two successful, well-attended and highly enjoyable events in Scotland. These conferences have brought together leading academics, educators and practitioners working in adventure tourism to present and discuss a range of topics pertaining to adventure tourism activities and education and recreation.
