Leisure for Community Development ZAA241


Whether it is through attending events, undertaking sporting pursuits, volunteering for a club, socialising online, visiting a gallery or relaxing in a public park, leisure provides critical contexts for social engagement in communities. In this light, leisure can afford strategic opportunities for community development. This subject utilises leisure contexts to focus on the contemporary community development theory and practice to provide both an understanding of the community development process and how to apply them. In this subject you will learn how to apply community development frameworks, approaches, tools and methods using leisure as the context.
