MVNGO is a partner in the context of the Erasmus + Sport Collaborative Partnership “European Everyday of Sport” coordinated by the Bulgarian NGO “BulSport”, with the contribution of an international Consortium of 7 NGOs from 7 European countries (Bulgaria, Italy, Croatia, Hungary, Lithuania , Poland, Slovakia), operating in the fields of Sport, youth and education. The project will have a total duration of 24 months.
The project aims to improve the sharing of good practices– a priority of the Erasmus + program- identify and promote good practices from the first and second editions of the European Week of Sport as well as encourage participation in Sport and physical activity. The most specific topic of this strategic partnership will be to develop, identify, promote and share good practices.
The current collaborative partnership will carry out various activities at local, national and international levels. It will focus on the collection, development, identification, analysis and sharing of good practices for the promotion of sport and physical activity in Europe and worldwide that can be easily implemented in the work of experts in the aforementioned fields . The project will also focus on the activities implemented in the first and second edition of the “European week of sport” and will collect all the good practices developed in 2015 and 2016 in the member countries. These tools will be very useful in planning the next editions of the EWoS as well as other events to promote physical activity as a means of raising awareness about its health related benefits through laying the grounds for greater participation and equal access, with the ultimate goal of enhancing engagement in Sport for all.
All the activities implemented during the project will be functional to the need to reach out with a particular attention to specific groups and to exploit this opportunity to promote a movement transversal to the various categories and aimed at making physical activity and sport parts of life daily life of an increasing number of people in Europe.
As noted on previous occasions, the tools to make Europe a “nation in motion” are not yet in the vanguard in terms of effectiveness, as can be deduced from the 2009 and 2014 “Eurobarometer” data. This need is the crucial issue that this Consortium will try to deal with addressing different target groups (children, young people, workers, old people, people living in cities and small villages, etc.), emphasizing physical activity as “positive medicine” for personal, professional and social development of individuals.
