The ALCIS 1 project
The ALCIS project encourages children to reflect about different lifestyle choices in relation to physical activity, stress management and overall wellbeing with the aim for a long-term impact. The project combines fun-orientated exercise classes with educational material on lifestyle issues that will be based on the My Choices Planner. This pedagogical tool is based on a methodology that not only provides information, but also teaches life skills such as critical thought, goal-setting and self-analysis. This way, young people are empowered to make and implement their own lifestyle choices. The aim of ALCIS is to encourage children, their relatives and friends to live healthy and exercise regularly.
The project will start during the European Week of Sport – in the second week of September – with classes adapted to children between 8 and 12 years old. The action covers 5 EU Member States, directly involving approximately 5,000 children who will participate in at least 2 non-competitive group exercise classes. By working on children’s wellbeing, the project contributes to invest into the lives of the citizens of tomorrow, their happiness and productivity.
