Education is the only antidote to disease of fear and hatred

by Michel Buchel

People feel uncertain and scared amid current events in Europe and beyond, including the Brexit, the coup in Turkey, racial tensions in the US and terrorist attacks around the globe. These events impact on our daily lives as global trends increasingly influence local situations. [more...]

How is your science centre responding to the refugee crisis?

by Julie Becker

No one can ignore the headlines. Migrants have been arriving in Europe in unusually large numbers, causing reactions from unconditional solidarity to pure xenophobia – and all the complex shades in between. [more...]

AZA training course equips future leaders of zoos and aquariums

by Jennifer Fields

It’s imperative that the next generation of executive directors of AZA-accredited zoological facilities are trained, educated, and prepared to lead their communities in environmental stewardship while advancing their facility with strong business and operational skills. [more...]

Waterpark professionals benefit from finding a work-life balance

by Aleatha Ezra

In October, the World Waterpark Association hosted its 35th symposium and trade show in Palm Springs, California. Known for its in-depth education program and community-building networking events, the WWA Show welcomed attendees from 30 countries. [more...]

Upgrading the industry

by Kate Cracknell

The National Living Wage is coming, and operators across the UK will be trying to work how they can afford it. It will certainly be a challenge in a sector that has long relied on fairly low-paid staff, but we believe it presents an interesting opportunity to upgrade the industry. [more...]

Being socially useful

by Kate Cracknell

Has your organisation recognised the value of being genuinely useful to its community – not settling for ‘doing good by helping people get healthy’, but actually putting community interests at the heart of the business? [more...]

Women (and girls) in sport

by Liz Terry

In the latest issue of Sports Management we focus on women in sport, with a cover celebrating the amazing Jo Pavey and her inspiring gold medal performance in the 10,000m at the European Athletics Championships in Zurich. She powered to the title aged 40 –the oldest competitor ever to win in Europe – and only a year after giving birth to her second child. It was lump in the throat stuff. [more...]

Obesity responsibility

by Kate Cracknell

How should we define obesity – is it a disease, a disability or a lifestyle condition? And why does the definition matter? [more...]

Trailblazing

by Liz Terry

In Leisure Management 2014 issue 3, we celebrate the disruptors – innovators who are coming into the leisure industry with new ideas which are innovative enough to bring about radical change in the way things are done in their sector – whether it be spa, health and fitness, sport or hospitality. [more...]

The feelgood factor

by Kate Cracknell

What really motivates you to exercise today? Are distant goals sufficiently engaging on a day-to-day basis, or will today’s gym visit be more about simply wanting to feel energised and positive about the day? [more...]

Attractions Management magazine launches AM2 global news magazine and invites the industry to join in conversation

by Liz Terry

It's a big day today for the team at Leisure Media as we launch our new magazine – AM2 – the first jobs and news magazine for the global visitor attractions industry. [more...]

The New Philanthropists

by Liz Terry

The majority of visitor attractions rely in part on donations to meet the cost of investment, so wooing benefactors and donors is part of the process. As more tech millionaires are made, will attractions which focus on tech-related topics find it easier to fundraise? [more...]

Creating ‘wellness cities’

by Kate Cracknell

Recommendations made in January that two new garden cities be built in southern England to ease the UK’s housing shortage have prompted fierce political debate. [more...]

The floods – learning from Foot and Mouth disease

by Kurt Janson

The analysis from the Met Service and the Environment Agency is grim. They believe that flooding in the UK is going to get significantly worse before it gets any better and that, after the wettest January since 1766, the ground is now so saturated that even if the rain were to stop tomorrow, the flood waters will not fully recede for up to four months in some parts of the country. [more...]

The post-recession return to growth

by Peter Ducker

Following one of the worst recessions in history, the UK is now passing from recovery to bona-fide growth. Instead of the 1.5 per cent it gave us a few months ago, the IMF now expects the UK to grow 2.4 per cent this year, higher than any other European country. [more...]

Physical inactivity kills

by Kate Cracknell

The primary focus of the fitness industry must be addressing physical inactivity. That was the very clear message coming out of November’s ukactive Summit – the gathering place for UK policymakers to discuss sport and fitness. The event saw a well-orchestrated strategic shift away from a focus on combating obesity towards a new focus on inactivity as a standalone issue, with all the key speakers highlighting the challenges in this area.
