Objectives
  1. Joint reflection to design a holistic methodology to introduce physical activity as a new lifestyle to prevent disease
  2. Identification of relevant practices in the use of sport for prevention and healthy aging
  3. Development of a Holistic Methodology based on Sportive practices as a substitute palliative care
  4. The holistic methodology should a useful tool for all kind of organizations

1. As the Commission recommends strengthening the cooperation between health, education and sport sectors in order to define and implement coherent strategies to reduce overweight, obesity and other health risks, in this context, S²-PORT encourages public authorities to examine how to promote the concept of active living through the regional and national training systems, including the training of teachers and elderly people. One of the first objectives of this proposal will be the joint reflection among different territorial levels and between different actors of civil society, on how to design a methodology to introduce physical activity as a new lifestyle to prevent disease.

 

2. The second objective of the proposal will be based on transnational exchanges put forward by public bodies or civil society organizations in order to identify relevant practices and test suitable European experiences, in the field of sport and the use of sport as a means for prevention and healthy ageing. The analysis and subsequent identification of relevant practices will take into account two variants: the scope of practices identified and the context of practices identified. The scope of practices will be extended to the different thematic areas covering healthy ageing, giving priority to good practices exercising a profit on palliative care, disease prevention, improved quality of life and social welfare, cares and prevention on cardiovascular and metabolic depression, among others. The context of practices will be provided, depending on the tool used to contribute to the goal of healthy aging: good practices in training, good practices in holding awareness or good practices in exploitation of results.

 

3. The third objective is demonstrating the potential of the most diverse actors participating in the project– within the public sector and civil society alike – that allows the development of a Holistic Methodology based on Sportive practices as substitute of medical assistance and palliative care and promoting a more physically active daily lives. The Methodology should be as practical as possible to be adaptable to each context and if possible to other target groups that could use it in the future.

 

4. Finally and as a main objective foreseen by the Preparatory Action and therefore by this proposal,the Methodology aims to be not only a theoretical exercise but a real and practical tool to prepare future EU actions in this field by involving stakeholders in health sectors, sportive training sectors and overall policy sectors that allow to define new political programs. The Holistic Methodology should reach the practicality and becomes a useful tool for all kind of organizations and entities involved in the promotion of Healthy Aging. Thereby the methodology should be validated not only by the technical teams involved in the project but also and mainly by the stakeholders that later should use it.
