WG 1. Network – Relationships between tourism, wellbeing and ecosystem services: theoretical aspects, impacts and interdependences.

In order to build up a strong conceptual level of interdisciplinary knowledge this working group will focus on exploring the interdisciplinary constructs of the Actions’ themes. Particular attention will be given to the identification and evaluation of health and wellbeing in terms of their relationships with different tourism products. In addition, the links/impacts of tourism and recreation development on ecosystems will be explored as well as the capacity to provide not only products for tourism and wellbeing but also to help in the maintenance of different ecosystem services. Key objectives of this group include:

  • Knowledge mapping of the fields and their interrelationships, utilising meta analysis techniques to construct the data base that will identify the key gaps in our conceptual knowledge.
  • A comprehensive Baseline Report showing the results of the meta-research to inform academia and policy.
  • Development of research proposals (including PhD level) to explore the knowledge gaps identified.
