Active I - Healthy Active Living for Well-Aged Adults (2013-2015)
This project proposes solutions to make seniors aware of healthy living guidelines, to teach them about proper nutrition, to help them to design their own personal healthy living plans and to advise them about safe and effective exercise. To achieve these objectives the partners will produce a research report describing the needs of seniors for the key components of a healthy active living programme; will provide the content of a healthy living course; create an on-line personal healthy living planner available for thousands of seniors that will include graphical representations of goals, progress and achievements; will offer innovative healthy living educational courses for elderly people; will train instructors working with seniors; will provide a manual for setting up active ageing centres; will start active ageing campaign and will organize a major seniors sports event combined with a valorization event for 500 seniors and decision makers.
