Cork hosted the 6th coordination meeting of AtlanticSocialLab project

“Sailing into Wellness” was adressed as an innovative approach to tackle social change

Partners from Atlantic Social LAB have met in Cork on the 26th March to discuss on new and innovative approaches to tackle social change. The partnership has exchanged ideas on promoting social change on green economy, social economy and participatory budgeting. The working groups sessions were followed by several study visits. A good example is “Sailing into Wellness”, a not for profit social enterprise born out of a passion to utilize the unique setting of the sea to help local communities. Their vision is for Sailing into Wellness to be a healthy natural solution for communities to look after their physical and mental well-being and it is their mission to use the sea to inspire change in their communities. Their sailing program is an educational and therapeutic activity designed to inspire communities.  They work with those affected by substance abuse and poor mental health, to help build their recovery; sailing is proven to be a powerful tool in their development. They also provide at risk youths an opportunity to take part in an educational and therapeutic physical group activity.
