Working With Partners to Increase Access
This session looks at the very real barriers that keep people from accessing recreation, which are not always money or transportation, but could be attitude, perception, lack of confidence or values. It explores how we can proactively work with partners to overcome these barriers and engage those that could benefit from positive recreation experiences. It advocates that leisure education must become core to recreation, health and social services so that as a society we can achieve higher levels of health and quality of life.
