An introduction to adventure programming, Adventure Programming and Travel for the 21st Century discusses hot topics such as climate change, risk management, technology, sustainability, and conservation—issues that are confronting the world in new and challenging ways. The book links the adventure profession to the environmental and sustainability fields of study and suggests a forward-thinking approach to the adventure profession from a range of perspectives, using key chapters and detailed case studies.

The wealth of knowledge of the editors and contributors extends from higher education into areas such as government recreation, adventure travel, sport tourism, environmental interpretation, and more. They serve in professional organizations such as NOLS, Outward Bound, the Institute for Outdoor Learning, and World Expeditions.

Designed for undergraduates, graduate students, and practitioners, this book is also intended for the adventure specialist who has responsibility for planning and managing adventure travel and programming products and services with consideration of group dynamics, finance, dimensions of sustainability, human resources, ethics, risk management, marketing, and technology.
