The project title and acronyms summarize perfectly our idea that European families should "live" and "feel" the EWoS: Live EWoS as an event celebrating the importance of physical activity, Feel the desire to be feel connected to others who are also becoming physically active, and become inspired to remain active and connected after EWoS.
The back bone of the project is the organization of a not-for-profit European sport contest for children (aged 6-14), conducted simultaneously in the 6 EU countries (Italy, Portugal, Turkey, Iceland, Croatia, and Spain) during the EWoS (19th-25th September 2016). During the project, 12,000 children will attend seminars related to themes promoted by the EWoS, and they will perform many different sport activities. During the weekend a “Family sport & recreation festival” will be organized to involve the family members (around 24,000). Moreover, the involvement of a total of 180 volunteers, Ambassadors of Sport, will make it possible to hold the planned activities and will make the concept that exercise is fundamental for a good quality of life more widespread.
Please, “feel” EWoS, get inspired to be active and contribute to making the whole world more active.
