Dissemination Events: Sports Activator in Adana, Turkey
Sports Activator was presented in Adana, Turkey, at school to 15 pupils and one teacher. It was prepared an introductory board that included the name of the project, the countries’ flags, photos from the project held in Romania and information regarding Erasmus +. Elif Ipek Demir mentioned that she shared her experience about the project and encouraged the participants to do more sports activities, eat healthier. Pupils had to share their thoughts by writing an essay, a poem or an article in English or Turkish. The participants offered positive feedback, they understood the importance of practising sports and having a healthy lifestyle. They were impressed by the project and would like in the future to be involved in similar ones.
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 20 offline and online events were organised, in Spain, Greece, Turkey and Bulgaria, that involved 659 participants.
