In the majority of the states part of the European Union, young people are not practicing sports on a regular basis in order to keep their fitness and are not getting involved in other types of outdoor recreational activities, such as trekking, hiking, running, etc because they don’t consider them attractive enough. This leads to a sedentary lifestyle becoming more and more popular and generating various problems that give a hard time to European youngsters: obesity, circulation problems, social isolation, depression, etc. At EU level, the number of youngsters that are affected by these issues is increasing. According to EuroStat data (Youth in Europe, Lifestyles), only 27% of the boys and 19% of the girls with ages between 16 and 30 declare that are regularly doing recreational physical activities (sports, running, hiking, etc). These numbers are concerning because it’s an average of all EU states, with numbers bigger in the North and West of Europe and lower in the East and South, the geographical area from which we constituted the partnership for our project.

The aim of our project is to increase the level of awareness about the importance of including physical sports and other outdoor recreational activities in the daily life of youngsters from the communities of the partners involved, underlining their positive impact for a healthy lifestyle, through the use of non-formal education methods, practical activities and experiential learning, in a multicultural context.

Our objectives are:

– To offer additional information and facilitate the exchange of knowledge between the 39 youngsters, under the supervision of the 7 leaders, from 7 different countries, related to the benefits of practicing regularly physical sports and other recreational outdoor activities (trekking, hiking, running), during those 11 days

– To involve the 39 youngsters and the 7 leaders in sports and outdoor concrete activities (individual and team sports, trekking, hiking, running, mountain orientation, etc), helping them to discover and to understand the benefits they can get

– The dissemination of relevant information in the communities of the partners about the benefits discovered by the young people, through a blog and a minimum of 5 motivational videos (distributed through Facebook, YouTube, Vimeo, etc) created during the activities

– The establishment of a basis for future cooperation with the promoters involved in this project, as well as their active volunteers, through the creation of a Facebook group which will work as a platform for communication and dissemination of good practices and results
