Department of Sports and Leisure in Reykjavík - ÍTR
The development of recreation services is one of the demands of modern society. There should always be a site for leisure, educational, cultural and nurturing activities conducted under the guidance of able professionals.
The Department of Sports and Leisure in Reykjavík (ÍTR) plays an important role in this respect, responding to people’s expectations of improved quality of life and safer community. What people do in their spare time should be creative, pleasurable, and make a big difference for each particular individual and the society at large. ÍTR’s activities are extremely multi-faceted and diverse.
The Department´s services are in demand among Reykjavik residents, and people have been showing appreciation of the Department´s work in the past years. Experiments aimed at improving and expanding services have been well received.
ÍTR’s policy has first and foremost been geared towards particular fields, but now with the advent of results management and compatible results assessments, as well as the balanced score card, it becomes much easier to define the overall scope of activities.
