CALL FOR ITALIAN PARTICIPANTS

ERASMUS+ SPORT: " Move to Improve "

ABOUT THE PROJECT: Young people spend increasingly more time in front of screens, and it is estimated that 90% of youngsters use computers and watch TV every day (Eurostat). As a result, instances of obesity and related health problems are on the rise, as well as worsened communication and social interaction between peers.

“Move to Improve” is a project designed to combat these trends and prevent further social barriers from forming. The aim is to promote social inclusion, equal opportunities, and awareness of the importance of physical activity for unedrpriviliged youth.

This idea is shared by youth organisations in Lithuania, Croatia, Bulgaria, Norway, Italy and Hungary.
