SOUTHEAST ASEAN STUDENTS’ CONFERENCE ON RECREATION AND ECOTOURISM (SEASCRT 2023)

WELCOMING NOTE

As we recover from the pandemic, ‘travel revenge’ emerges as people make up for the lost time. The pandemic has also shifted travel patterns with more demand for domestic, non-massive and nature-based activities. Ecotourism has always been regarded as a subgroup of tourism. Its association with nature-based activities that emphasize conservation and places importance on community involvement and the contribution of ecotourism development to the local communities has earned it a more green and sustainable form of tourism. Hence, with the picking up of recreation, tourism, and ecotourism activities, there is a need for collective and collaborative efforts to steer it toward conservation and sustainability.

With that in mind, the Southeast Asian Conference for Students in Recreation and Ecotourism 2023 (SEASCRT 2023) will be organized for undergraduate and post-graduate students from higher education institutions in Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, and the Philippines. With the theme Steering Recreation and Tourism towards Conservation, the virtual conference provides a platform for university students to share their research activities and findings in the related field in their respective countries.

The virtual conference is organized by the Department of Recreation and Ecotourism, Faculty of Forestry and Environment, Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) in collaboration with the College of Innovation and Management, Songkhla Rajabhat University (SKRU), Faculty of Agriculture, University of Mataram and College of Forestry and Natural Resources (UNRAM), University of the Philippines Los Baños (UPLB).
