SCORING FOR HEALTH PARTNERS MEET VIA VIDEO CONFERENCE CALL30 March 20
With the cancellation of the Scoring for Health project kick-off meeting in Breda, due to the current COVID-19 crisis, the project partners met via a video conference call.
Scoring for Health aims to tackle the problem of childhood obesity which, as identified by the World Health Organization, is still a critical issue throughout Europe today. With the underlying target of promoting a healthy diet and lifestyle amongst children, their families and wider communities across Europe, the programme supports the 3rd UN Sustainable Development Goal of Good Health and Well Being and is funded by Erasmus+.
Scoring for Health encourages children from 7 to 14 years and their parents to adopt a healthy lifestyle and make them aware of healthy nutrition. This programme will be running for 3 years, where 3 periods of 20 weeks of various activities will be delivered by the participating football clubs and the Portuguese FA in cooperation with local schools and health organisations. Each cycle of the programme starts and finishes with a sporting event at the respective stadiums or elite academies. Participants will be given specialist interactive classes, learning sessions and workshops on a weekly basis on topics such as nutrition, cooking, physical activity and football sessions.
PARTICIPATING ORGANISATIONS INCLUDE:
- Randers FC
- Noaberschap United Foundation (FC Emmen)
- Club Brugge Foundation
- Feyenoord Foundation
- Greenock Morton Community Trust
- Links Park Community Trust (Montrose FC)
- Ferencvaros TC
- Federacao Portuguesa de Futebol (FPF)
- SV Werder Bremen
It was a productive meeting and all partners are looking forward to co-operating on this project together, to engage with 400 pupils promoting healthy eating & active lifestyles.
