Leisure and Well-Being Across Countries in the Era of Coronavirus-19:
Trends and Applications
The Coronavirus-19 pandemic has undoubtedly moved our social lives to an online dimension and, even within smoother sanitation and social distancing measures, forms of interaction and full access to leisure as a primary source of meaningfulness in life and well-being have been seriously affected.
The Leisure and Well-Being SIG (from the World Leisure Organization – WLO) proposes a research project, which grows from the inner synergies provided by WLO, gathering a group of members, representing different countries, with the following objectives:
To know about the pandemic and post-pandemic period and variables related to leisure and well-being;
To explore practices, experiences, and concepts in relation to different countries, discussing about culture and relations with leisure and well-being;
To conclude on trends, applications, and guidelines, contributing to new opportunities for enhancing well-being through leisure.
