Just as satisfying leisure time can make individuals more balanced and creative, it can contribute to building healthy communities for them to live in.

Each individual who makes a positive change in their life influences many others-friends, family, co-workers and others with whom they associate. The impact of education for leisure therefore spreads throughout communities by a multiplier effect. It can give more people the opportunity to feel most free, while also contributing to environmental sustainability.
