Themes of the conference The three main themes of the conference will be directly linked to the IRNIST scientificproject.

These three points cover the broader concept of “Local sustainable development thanks to sport tourism; Strategy and Responsibility of the actors; Prospective of the globalization effects”.

Ø Sports tourism, economy and innovation.

Ø The social impact of ST Consumption.

Ø Sports tourism, local development and spatial change territory.  

Other themes on aspects of sport tourism can be proposed. As it was said, we find the same mistakes everywhere and speaking about sustainabledevelopment means to keep in mind that, in spite of the national rules and policies, it isimportant to try to understand a question at the international level and to propose commonsolutions and policies at the same level. That is why it would be nice if the communicationcould be at an international level.   This conference aims to get professionals to share their knowledge. We therefore strongly encourage professionals to submit proposals for papers on their experience and views of sports tourism.
