ICCE has joined the Movement Environment Well (MEW) Erasums+ funded project, which will promote physical activity, contributing towards the 'European Network of Health'.
The MEW project aims at the constitution of the “European Network for Health” to promote a “Model of Action” (MA). The MA includes tackling sedentariness, saving money through physical activitiy and individual, social wellbeing generated by active lifestyle. The publication of a book at the end of the project will help to convey the value of the MA and will be sent to the European Commission and National Ministers in order to share the research data. The project aims to define a “protocol of activities” – motor and sanitary – for 200 beneficiaries from several EU countries. The project will engage beneficiaries in group activity to support their efforts, motivation and social relationships during 10 multiplier sport events to discover urban and extra-urban areas, trekking and/or biking. An operative staff with digital equipment will monitor and support the participants and verify participation levels as well as the results achieved by each individual.
There are eleven partners involved in the project: International Council of Coaching Excellence (UK), International Council of Sport and Physical Education EV (DE), Instituto Politecnico da Guarda (PT), Volkshochschule im Landkreis CHAM EV (DE), International Mountain Bicycling Association Europe (NL), Clubul de Turism Veniti cu noi (RO), Azienda Unita Sanitaria Locale Romad (IT), Baltic Youth Way (LV), Universita Degli Studi di Roma Foro Italico (IT), Institute of Technology Tralee (IE).
The project runs between January 2018 and December 2019.
