Move To Improve
January - December 2019
MAIN PROBLEM THE PROJECT ADDRESSES
Statistics show that 90% of young people use computers and watch TV every day (Eurostat). This naturally leads to less physical activity, and consequently higher obesity and other health problems (WHO statistics show that prevalence of obesity nearly doubled between 1980 and 2018). At the same time, youth have less time for live communication with their peers; thus, can develop further social barriers.
AIM OF THE PROJECT
To promote social inclusion, equal opportunities, and awareness of the importance of health-enhancing physical activity through grassroots sports for underprivileged youth.
To promote voluntary activities in sport.
Youth willing to volunteer in sports initiatives and use their skills in a multicultural environment, or simply participate in sports camps across the EU;
Other youth & sports organisations in project partner countries (and later on across Europe);
Youth, sport volunteers and organisations, as well as general public across the project countries will also increase awareness of the importance of social inclusion, equal opportunities and health-enhancing physical activity through increased participation in, and equal access to, sport for all.
The project was co-funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union.
