Creation, development and perspectives of a (re)newed quest : Tourism, Leisure, Heritage

French

The IREST (Institut of research and superior studies in the field of tourism) organize together with the CDT du Val-de-Marne (Board responsible for tourism) a colloquium upon the subject European Rivers and Towns on Friday and Saturday 1st and 2nd of July. They will interest specifically in: "Creation, development and perspectives of a (re)newed conquest : Tourism, Leisure, and Heritage".

 

 

 

The entertainment aspect of urban and suburban rivers (the banks of the river Marne and the river Seine in Paris and in the Paris region, the banks of the Thames, of the Amstel, the Danube, etc.) have, since the 19th century, generated new social norms and cultural dynamics.  A certain “art de vivre” (the art of living) and ways to relax first appeared with the urban middle-class and the railways which facilitated transport. This then progressively spread to the urban working-class population.This phenomenon of appropriation of the waters edge and the “conquest of leisure” concerns several major European cities, each with their own specific style and signature and other features they have in common.

 

The goal-perspective approach to the conference will be a pluridisciplinary task, seeking to understand the complex circumstances that intersect with several areas and disciplines (the right to leisure, history and sociology of leisure activities, tourism, tourism marketing, social dynamics, urbanism - spatial development and planning, environment - nature and landscape, water sports - riverside fun activities, environmental psychology).

 

This conference contributes to the collective discussion to create a European network that could be certificate as a Cultural Route of the Council of Europe. The network topic should be the development of leisure in European metropolis riversides.

 

This colloquium is of great importance for the "European riverside stories" cultural route which is managed by the CDT du Val-de-Marne. Indeed, several European countries with the same history and/or with a steady range of riverside leisure activities will gather and share their experience.

This conference contributes to the collective discussion to create a European network that could be certificate as a Cultural Route of the Council of Europe. The network topic should be the development of leisure in European metropolis riversides.
