Physical Activity Serving Society
The overall objective of the project is to tackle the physical inactivity crisis in Europe, which has been documented so far essentially through the 2008 EU Physical Activity Guidelines at the institutional level. The project aims at gathering and analysing European data on the scale, costs and consequences of the physical activity crisis in Europe, with the view to complement existing European data on the state of physical activity in Europe, to identify and promote sectorial good practices whilst adopting an innovative cross-sectorial, holistic and transversal approach.
European School Sport Day
In order to achieve the innovative objective of the project, the partners perform a common development activity. The partner organizations identify and summarize the already existing knowledge, good practice and know-how related to the organization of sport events through workshops.
Active School Communities
The Active School Communities project will equip community sport organisations with an adaptable toolkit they can use to collaborate more effectively with schools on physical activity initiatives for primary school children. The toolkit will also assist them in establishing contact with and advocating toward governments to drive the impact of their initiatives. The knowledge base used to develop the toolkit will be drawn from an experienced group of partners from research institutions, the education sector and non-profit sport organisations from nine countries in West, East, North and South Europe.
The overall objective of the project is to build capacity in civil society organisations to engage in active advocacy for the implementation of the EU PA Guidelines. The European Partners are umbrella organisations with experience in advocacy on the EU level. They will, in turn, engage with their member associations (National Project Partners and beyond) to deliver capacity building, alliance creation and specific advocacy interventions on national and local levels.
