Main objective of project COMEWOS is to organize an EWOS event in 6 EU countries to promote the slow exercise for health and raise awareness of young Europeans (aged 16-18 years) on HEPA (Health-enhancing physical activity) focal points and WHO (World Health Organisation) Global recommendations on physical activity for health.
Main project’s components are training of sport organizations’ operators and Physical Education school teachers, elaborating of education modules in schools, and organisation of a EWOS SPORT EVENT at the same time in each partner country.
Come Together Methodology
Come Together is a Slow Sport Event which consists of walking quickly or running slowly. It is a sort of ‘reversed match’ with a highly symbolic meaning because the teams, constituted by little groups with the same foot speed, will not leave so closely but will arrive all together, contrasting the traditional idea of one winner.
The sport event consists of a slow run/fast walk of teams that follow its own speed, previously tested by the mean of the test of the pitch speed in the ‘yield health’.
In order to transmit the methodological knowledge and effectuate the tests to form the teams during the sport event, a training course for sport organizations operators will be provided in the first phases of the project implementation by UISP in Italy (Bologna) and several Education Modules will be carried out by trained operators and school teachers in 6 schools in respective countries.
In synthesis, Come Together methodology is characterized by the following components:
- Support the implementation of the EU guidelines on physical activity for health (HEPA)
- Contribute to the implementation of the European Week of Sport (EWOS) 2016
