Dissemination Events: Virtual Sports Activator in Portugal
Hugo Agra Gomes dos Santos and his team created an online Webinar about Family Health and Well-being. The city council had helped him to promote the event on their cultural agenda. On social media they had 17 days of promotion and the webinar was done from a recognized Local Business Habitat co-working space of the city, normally where creative/entrepreneurship projects born and are developed. They reached more than 1000 people via social media marketing actions, on Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn. They had more than 20 people participating on the event. The webinar was made on Zoom platform and all presented speakers were professionals with experience on the program topics. Their main purpose was to increase awareness on local families about this topic and get their interaction with speakers, so they can get motivation each day, and responsibility to apply the knowledge on their daily-life.
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 people 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.
