This timely volume brings together some of the leading thinkers in ecological economics to show that achieving sustainable development will require economies to operate within ecological limits; nations to produce and maintain better rather than more physical wealth; and the international community to restore 'internationalist' institutions and trading arrangements. This book focuses on three critical issues pertaining to the broader goal of sustainable development - namely, the degenerative forces of globalisation, ecological sustainability requirements, and how best to negotiate the economic transition process. While the applicability of ecological sustainability to sustainable development is obvious, the association between economic transition and sustainable development, and more particularly, how globalisation forces can impact negatively on the sustainable development process, is poorly understood. This path-breaking book brings together some of the leading practitioners in the field of sustainable development to discuss these issues and to outline ways to achieve sustainable development without the perceived need for continuous growth. The book culminates with a number of policy recommendations and institutional modifications to assist nations and the global community to achieve sustainable development. This book will prove invaluable for academics and researchers in ecological, environmental, and natural resource economics as well as sustainable development, globalisation and international trade. Practitioners and policy-makers at all levels will find this resource both interesting and instrumental to their work.
Family vacations are a way of life for many families. Family vacations today are changing due to the switch to a Year Round School (YRS) calendar and other changes within the family. The YRS calendar is being implemented in a greater number of schools around the United States each year. The change to the YRS calendar could possibly affect family vacation habits and patterns in regards to the travel party, when travel takes place, travel destination, length of travel, whether travel is taking place or not, mode of transportation, and the decision making process. The leisure travel industry is also becoming aware of the changes that are occurring to the family vacation in response to the implementation of the YRS calendar. The industry and the family working together, the best possible experience for family travel will be achieved. This study examines the changes in family vacation habits and patterns. The analysis should help answer the questions: What are the changes? What are the changes in the decision making process? What recommendations could be given to the leisure travel industry? This book is addressed to professionals and researchers in Hospitality and Tourism
