Leisure and the Quality of Life. A New Ethic for the 70's and Beyond.
Staley, Edwin J., Ed.; Miller, Norman P., Ed.
This book covers the national conference and consultation in Leisure and the Quality of Life held in the leisure-oriented, residential community of Rancho La Costa, California, in March of 1970. Cosponsored by the American Association for Health, Physical Education, and Recreation (AAHPER) and the American Institute of Planners (AIP), the conference explored the leisure dimension of our future environment and what it can contribute to improving the quality of life for all Americans in the next 50 years. More specifically, the consultation sought to understand the cumulative effect of leisure on the environment, to link professional and public opinion, to provide wider national participation in policy discussions, and to determine implications and directions for the major institutions of society. The conference plan was designed to include a variety of methods of presenting content material and to permit participatory involvement by all those attending. These delegates from 25 states and Canada represented a variety of disciplines and organizations; policy implications and national goals were seen from the viewpoint of government, industry, labor, social agencies, education, and the lay community. References are included. (Author/SES)
