Leisurecard Scheme for Galway, Mayo & Roscommon
Dear parents, there was an important webinar on last Thursday about Planet Youth, the Icelandic Leisurecard scheme, and the huge impact the scheme has had on a whole generation’s health and wellbeing in Iceland. It is very likely now that this scheme will be coming to the West of Ireland shortly, as a pilot for the country, and it represents a great opportunity for our children and our communities.
The webinar is available online to view; on YouTube at https://youtu.be/1-0FbhAB4z8 also at https://planetyouth.ie/fristund-is-webinar/.
We encourage you to look at the end of the webinar from 48.13 and then go back over it later in full if you’re interested in learning more.
This scheme is being brought to cabinet by Anne Rabbitte TD shortly, and she is also advocating for it across several government departments in order to secure the necessary funding for a full-scale implementation here. The intention is to get a properly funded 3-year pilot Leisurecard scheme for Galway, Mayo and Roscommon. If you’re interested in supporting this scheme could you please like / share the pinned posts about it on the www.facebook.com/planetyouthireland or www.twitter.com/planetyoutheire pages and ask your contacts and friends to do the same.
It will help Anne Rabbitte’s cause quite a bit if she has local Galway, Mayo and Roscommon parents showing their support so no harm to let her know through social media channels.
