Future trends for outdoor recreation (TP1680)

In 2005 a strategic futures consultancy firm, the Henley Centre, were commissioned to undertake an independent assessment of the main factors that would influence the future of outdoor recreation.

The Henley Centre consulted widely among key organisations with an interest in the outdoors and looked at the trends that they expected would have implications for outdoor recreation between 2005 and 2015.

Henley Centre’s report on the main factors that will influence the future of outdoor recreation includes a paper introducing the research and five discussion papers. Each of the discussion papers focuses on a different aspect of outdoor recreation.
