We are pleased to announce the 5 organizations involved in the Erasmus+ KeyAction2 Sportification project met for the first time during the kickoff meeting held during the 4th and 5th of February in Timișoara, Romania. The meeting took place at IncubART in a space perfectly suited for us, where we warmly welcomed everyone to our country and into this project which we will be implementing during the next 2 years.
We, as the Center of Strategies for Youth Development, are fulfilling the role of coordinators for this project. We had a very productive first meeting, starting with introductions and continuing with a general introduction to all the activities, events and future meetings we are going to prepare. The first meeting is essential for the productivity and efficiency of how we are going to work on this project, because we set up a rythm and a clear understanding on how to proceed in future situations. By assigning roles and drawing guidlines for each organization involved, we made sure to improve the transparency and the communication between the partners so the implementation can proceed smooth and punctual.
In Europe today, 6 of the 7 biggest risk factors for premature death – blood pressure, cholesterol, body mass index, inadequate intake of fruit, obesity and being overweight – are rising across Europe. The European Commission advocates an integrated approach to address these problems, involving stakeholders at local, regional, national and European levels.
The project is aimed at increasing, promoting and encouraging participation of young people across the EU in sports and PA activities.
