Dissemination Events: Sports Activator in Thessaloniki, Greece

In Thessaloniki, Greece, Sports Activator took place with 7 youth from local community. 

Ioannis Pitris, the coordinator of the event, stated that they planned an informational session that was shared online, while offline they organised a contact improvisation jam. The group was composed of participants with ages between 20-31 years old, who changed their plans to take part in the non-formal educational activities for an evening. In the reflection part, almost everyone expressed their unique feelings, both mental and physical.

The Greek team was willing to share the amazing feedback received:

“It is so magnificent to get together with young people, even strangers, and take part in such an activity. We have lost the meaning of living together in the big cities. We have lost human contact, human vibrations, cooperation and rhythm. Thank you all for being here tonight.” 
- Dimos Tzimoulidis

“In the beginning I thought that we were about to just dance! But now, wow: I feel my whole body in a perfect condition, even though I am sweat way too much.”
- Monica Ortiz Alvarez

“31 years old and it’s the first time of my life that I don't regret cancelling the drinks and doing something alternative! My poor friends, they don't know what they have missed.” 
- Beth Chembelayne

“Faith in humanity restored! Let's get again active babe!” 
- Vasiliki Papoulia

Sports Activator is co-funded by Erasmus+ Sport Programme, with the support of the European Union.

Sports Activator project had two main meetings in Romania, which involved more than 70 participants from 8 countries and different communities. We managed to gather together sport teachers, trainers, youth workers, volunteers, coaches, people involved in sport clubs and different participants with various backgrounds in the sports field.

One of the meetings objectives was to create a toolbox with helpful information about a healthy lifestyle, nutrition, physical activity, games and methods that can contribute to decrease the rate of physical inactivity among youngsters. Everybody contributed to this brochure with personal experience, examples of good practice, games and methods that they have already tried and worked very well among the young people.

After the international mobilities, the participants had the mission to share their learning achievements by facilitating international sports events in their local communities. So far 19 offline and online events were organised, in Spain, Greece, Turkey and Bulgaria, that involved 639 participants. During the following days we will share information about all these dissemination events.
