Are you interested in or working with the connection between Outdoor Sports and Physical and Mental Health? ūüćÉ

Many institutions, voluntary organizations and the public authorities, have started implementing the use of the outdoors in treatments, prevention and health promotion. However, knowledge about the use of these various initiatives is limited, especially across national borders.

Our webinar therefore calls for a qualified knowledge sharing about experiences and perspectives in the field, and should initiate a development of a concrete initiative, which is supported by Erasmus+ or other EU funds.

The purpose of the webinar

Being in nature is recognized as providing a range of significant benefits that improve mental and physical well-being. Therefore, many institutions, voluntary organizations and the public authorities, have started implementing the use of the outdoors in treatments, prevention and health promotion.

However, knowledge about the use of these various initiatives is limited, especially across national borders. It is therefore relevant to initiate a webinar where stakeholders from different areas can present and share knowledge about their initiatives and in general raise awareness of the potential to use outdoor sports in the context of regional and local development.

The purpose of this webinar is to share knowledge on the power of outdoor sports to promote mental and physical health, to promote the wider take-up in health services of our approach and, more specifically, to initiate a process leading to an application for Erasmus+ funds.

The process will consist of two sessions:

In the first session you will learn about the Share Initiative, how others have worked with outdoor sports in their environment, and how Erasmus+, provided by the European Commission, could support a movement promoting outdoor sports in our society.

In the second session we will work in groups in order to develop the outlines of an application.

An important goal of this webinar is to lay the foundation for cooperation in developing an Erasmus+ application or obtaining other potential funds.
