Gaisce are delighted to announce a new partnership with X-HALE. X-HALE is an Irish Cancer Society initiative which partners with youth organisations and young people to work towards a tobacco free generation. According to research, about 8% of young people aged 10-17 in Ireland smoke. We are very much looking forward to encouraging youth groups across the country to learn the facts about smoking through X-HALE and to recognising their achievements in taking action on tobacco in their communities.
How you can get involved:
The X-HALE 2018 Short Film Competition is an exciting opportunity for youth groups to spread the word about the impact of smoking by creating and promoting a youth-led short-film. Every year, the Irish Cancer Society support youth groups from all over Ireland in making a short film to encourage young people to be smoke free. If you’re part of a youth organisation, project, club, services or centre working with young people aged 10-24, we want you on board for X-HALE 2018! This year we will have exciting new opportunities for participating young people to develop and showcase their skills, creativity and talents to lead the way towards Ireland’s First Tobacco Free Generation.
This Partnership recognises that participation in X-HALE can be used for Community involvement or Personal skill for the Bronze Gaisce award.
