Kauno kolegija vykdo “Erasmus+ Sport” projektą “Villages on the move GO”, kuris skatina savanoriškų sporto organizacijų veiklą bei socialinį tvarumą kaimiškose vietovėse. Jiems reikia paramos ir metodų, kaip organizuoti darbą, siekiant užtikrinti sveikatą stiprinančius fizinio aktyvumo veiklų prieinamumą skirtingoms tikslinėms grupėms: vaikams, suaugusiems, pagyvenusiems žmonėms bei specialioms grupėms, tokioms kaip imigrantai ar pabėgėliai.

Eskpertai, studentai, inovatoriai, pilietinių iniciatyvų vykdytojai ir kūrybiški piliečiai kviečiami dalyvauti diskusiniame seminare spalio 15 dieną ir kurti novatoriškas idėjas, siūlyti sprendimus, kurie gali padėti skatinti gyventojų fizinį aktyvumą bei sportą regionuose.

Seminaro tikslas – konkrečių ir efektyvių sprendimų atradimas, o ne tik idėjų pateikimas. Geriausi siūlymai bus atvirai skelbiami svetainėje, kad galėtų susipažinti visi besidomintys projekto veikla.

Kaunas University of Applied Sciences implements the Erasmus + Sport project “Villages on the move GO”, which promotes the activities and social sustainability of voluntary sport clubs in rural areas. These clubs and their organisators need support and methods of arranging work to ensure access to health-enhancing physical activity activities for different target groups: children, adults, the elderly and special groups such as immigrants or refugees.

Experts, students, innovators, civic initiators and creative citizens are invited to take part in a discussion seminar on 15 October to develop innovative ideas and solutions that can help promote physical activity and sport in the regions.
The aim of the seminar is to discover concrete and effective solutions, not just to present ideas.

The best proposals will be published on the website for everyone interested in the project.
