A national web portal ‘leisure-time activities for the youth’ will be launched  as a pilot program in one province by the end of next month before it is introduced on the national level in April, said Mohsen Talayi Mahani, project manager for youth programs at the Ministry of Sports and Youth Affairs. “A prototype was unveiled in Chaharmahal-Bakhtiari Province in August, and the project will be put to the test in the province within two months,” he told ISNA. Mahani recalled the need and necessity for such a program, saying “healthy recreation plays an important role in and contributes to cultural development plus prevention of social maladies.” It seeks to organize and propose leisure programs via various modes, including affordable tourism.
