    • Leisure, Sport & Tourism IB Geography 2 hours Objective: 1. Is it easy to define leisure, tourism and sport as single activities or are they invariably interlinked? 2. What factors have led to a growth in these activities?

      • However, do some people enjoy carrying out domestic activities. What about DIY?
      • Is free time really free? Or do social and economic forces package it as « leisure time » and offer you a host of (paid for) activities. If you have a free weekend, what sort of things might you do? How is this presented to you? Why do you feel it is leisure?
    • Why do MEDC governments like to promote « Leisure Time » amongst their populations?
