Green Sport and Outdoor Activities for Environmental Awareness & Lifestyle is an 18 months long-term project within the Key Action 2 of the Erasmus Plus Programme, which main aim is to share and exchange good practices on the impact of green sports and outdoor activities. Through its activities, the project intends to encourage a healthy and inclusive lifestyle, by working for a healthy environment.
The specific objectives of the project are:
To enable youth workers, organizations, and young people, to develop a limited set of measures, actions and initiatives associated with green practice sports and outdoor activities.
To increase the sense of belonging and the sense of community for the youngsters in their local community through their direct and active participation obtained through the practice of green sports and outdoor activities.
To raise awareness on the environmental issues by bringing the Green Deal close to youngsters and give them the right tools to act.
To contribute to building empowered and committed communities to increase the processes of youth participation and empower them for the environmental challenges that in today’s EU regions are facing.
To create a network of organizations in Europe that plan and implement future projects with the E+ program to generate further opportunities for young Europeans and their local communities.
The project will reach the planned objectives through a series of activities that will bring to the development of the following outcomes:
- A Research on the state of art of green sports and outdoor activities in each country which will be available in 5 languages and free to use/download.
- A Booklet of good practices on the impact of green sports and outdoor activities.
The project involves 4 international NGOs coming from 3 different countries: Active Zone Outdoor (Cyprus), TDM 2000 International (Italy), Conexão Jovem Associação (Portugal), Asociatia Scout Society (Romania).
Completing the educational process is a cycle of international activities: a kick-off meeting, a seminar to exchange best practices and monitor Project outputs, and an overall final evaluation.
