Call for special sessions and abstracts


Special session proposals

The call for special sessions has closed and sessions have been confirmed.

Within the main Congress programme, 17th World Leisure Congress will feature special sessions (90 minutes). The special session aims to focus on a specific topic of interest for World Leisure Organisation members and non-members.
