The purpose of this symposium is to gather scholars, students, practitioners, and interested others who are committed to making a positive difference in matters of social and environmental justice in the field of parks, recreation, and tourism. We believe working for social and environmental justice ought to be the essence of our professional mission.  Race, gender, sexuality, class, ability, and other social markers have been studied extensively in a multitude of leisure settings, often leading academicians to call for change.  At the same time, leisure studies scholars have begun addressing ecological health, recognizing the interconnectedness between healthy people and healthy environments, and thereby suggesting that social and environmental justice are opposite sides of the same coin.
