From 6th to 8th March 2017 the kick off meeting of the project took place in Vicenza (Italy).
The objectives and the expected results of the project were presented, shared and agreed by the partnership.
The general objective of the project is to promote and enhance physical activities amongst citizens in order to improve health and to make people aware about the importance of healthy dimension in their daily life. The aim of the project is to establish a network in which cities, research institutes and sport associations can collaborate, in order to integrate physical activities in the urban policies. The purpose is to include both the cultural and the natural dimension.
Each partner presented its Organization: aims, main activities, EU projects experience, aims and activities related to HEPNESS, and the tasks of the individual partners were defined on the basis of their role. The partnership discussed about the collection methodology of the Literature review and framework of Good Practices.
Each city presented its own good practices to inspire the understanding of HEPNESS Good Practices.
A press conference took place for local dissemination of the project (see Comune di Vicenza webpage) and the meeting was closed with a HEPNESS walk in Vicenza historic center (valorization of the cultural dimension).
