Tourism, public spaces, leisure, and mind tools – resources and readings

As a researcher, I read a number of different articles and publications each week related to sustainability, leadership, community engagement, public participation, leisure, tourism, and recreation.  My sources are varied, so I utilize my critical thinking skills to ensure that I don’t believe everything I read.  At the same time, I think it’s extremely important to seek out a variety of information sources to keep me up to date on what is happening within academic research and within the sectors I have an interest in.

Today, I’m going to share four easily accessible resources.  I encourage you to check them out and let me know what you think.  And if you have any suggestions for great sources of information, I am happy to hear it.
