The World Leisure Day (WL Day), an initiative of the World Leisure Organization (WLO), aims to reinforce leisure as a social right and its importance in daily life, as well as to expand its possibilities of manifestation and promote reflection on the accesses and barriers that still exist for many people around the world.
The practices and habits that occur during leisure time play an important part in the construction of identities and the promotion of health and well-being for individuals in different sociocultural contexts.
