‘Fristund.is! – the amazing Icelandic Leisurecard scheme’.
The focus of the webinar is a scheme successful in Iceland that we hope may be coming to our region soon.
The Leisurecard in Iceland is an annual grant of €350 for every child 6-18 years old to spend solely on interests, hobbies and sports, extracurricular. There have been amazing outcomes for their young population because of it and it’s all administered through one website called www.fristund.is.
There are hundreds and hundreds of activities; sports, arts, music, hobbies, all of which are professionally-led because it’s funded by the income generated from the scheme. You can find some more information on the webinar page.
