APPLE is Sport Project co-funded by the Erasmus+ Sport Programme of the European Union. It works in the framework of encouraging participation in sport and physical activity, with a special focus on two of the pillars of the so-called “Tartu Call For A Healthy Lifestyle”, document of the European Commission launched during the opening of the European Week of Sport 2017 in Tartu (Estonia): sport and health.
APPLE (1st January 2020 – 30th June 2021) aims to sensitize European citizens, especially young people and children, towards the importance of conducting a healthy lifestyle. This target is going to be reached through a series of seminars and active lessons with boys and girls in schools and with meetings relevant stakeholders. These activities are focusing not only on sport promotion, but on health in a wider perspective. Working with young people is indeed crucial to improve health conditions of present and future society.
The Project agrees with the European Commission idea of creating a joint action not only focusing on sport, but including a 360° health perspective. Through a series of activities, the Partners involved aim to create a common programme of school lessons and seminars dedicated, from one hand, to promote sport and physical activity and, from another hand, to promote and inform citizens and young people about the importance of healthy style of living.
The Project consortium is composed by eight Sports Clubs that are part of the European Multisport Club Association (S.S. Lazio Atletica Leggera, Aalborg, Crvena Zvezda, Feyenoord Rotterdam, HASK Mladost, SC Levski Sport for All, Polisportiva Pontevecchio), plus the European Platform for Sport Innovation.
