PLA's position paper identifies the challenges the parks and leisure industry faces in the promotion of community health and wellbeing, and the methods it can take to overcome them. Give it a read.
This position paper was developed by Parks and Leisure Australia (PLA) for use by the PLA board, regional councils, members and stakeholders to identify key issues and priorities for the parks and leisure industry relating to community health and wellbeing.
It is based on the Community Health and Wellbeing Position Paper produced by Karen Milligan and May Carter on behalf of PLA (WA) in 2013.
It specifically outlines:
- The key health and wellbeing challenges facing the industry
- The value of parks and leisure to community health and wellbeing
- An overview of the parks and leisure industry’s role in community health and wellbeing
Most importantly, it articulates what PLA and its members will do to promote community health and wellbeing.
