The main theme of MMV10 is Managing outdoor recreation experiences in the Anthropocene – Resources, markets, innovations. This theme reflects how management of visitor practises in natural surroundings become increasingly dependent on a knowledge-based application of human and natural resources.
A better understanding of market transformations and emerging trends in outdoor recreation and nature-based tourism is required in a dynamic world. In the same vein, there is a need to suggest creative and innovative solutions to handle impending management challenges and opportunities in protected and recreational areas.
We welcome presentations under the proposed sub-themes of the MMV10, listed in the right-hand column - or below, if you read this on your phone. You can also propose a session by following the steps below.
We are now accepting proposals for sessions related to the MMV main theme. Please use the subject "MMV10_session_proposal" in your e-mail when you submit: firstname.lastname@example.org.

These may include, but are not limited to, oral presentations on a specific topic, panel or round table discussions, films, or video presentations.
