~ Sustainability and Innovations in Work and Leisure ~

ASAC 2014 will be hosted in Muskoka, Ontario, Canada, by Nipissing University. The conference theme, Sustainability and Innovation in Work and Leisure is an opportunity to examine and discuss issues and phenomena about change and the ecological, social and economic impacts on our workspaces and society. The theme is a broad basis which should provide a good environment for practitioners, teachers and scholars to reflect on and share their unique perspectives.

The conference will take place in the Muskoka Region of Northern Ontario at the Deerhurst Resort. The beautiful Deerhurst Resort is located in the town of Huntsville, also known for being the renowned cottage country of Toronto. The Muskoka Region was selected by National Geographic Traveler as one of the top places in the world to visit in 2012. Deerhurst Resort has been known as “the place where the world meets” as evidenced by its hosting of the 2010 G8 Summit.
