The MOVING for HEALTH project brings together different settings (schools, sport clubs, health centres and local communities) and target groups (teachers, trainers, health providers, community developers) to build capacity to work transnationally and across sectors.
The MOVING for HEALTH project is therefore approaching the challenge to promote healthy and active lifestyles in a holistic way. Rather than tacking single health determinants, factors of health promotion or specific settings individually, we will create the conceptual framework for the target groups to address a combination of factors simultaneously, through a shared conception of physical and health literacy, increased competence on its different and interrelated elements, and through tools to work across settings and sectors to promote health.
The project also addresses and defines common needs and priorities in the fields of education, training, youth, sport, health and community development. Thus, the 4 primary target groups in the projects are: teachers, trainers, community developers and health providers. While the 4 secondary target groups are: students, club members, citizens and patients.
