Save the date! The multiplier event of the “New Health” project and the Final Conference of the “Active Ageing Communities” project will be held in Brussels (THON Hotel EU) on 6 October.
Join us for a day full of insightful sessions on the role of physical activity in healthy living and active ageing.
In the morning, the main results of the New Health project will be presented, focusing on the role and education standards of “Healthy Lifestyle promoters”, and how these newly trained professionals can improve physical activity, healthy eating, mental well-being and a healthy lifestyle among their target groups.
The afternoon will be a unique occasion to get acquainted with the Active Ageing Communities methodology, research results and project outcomes. Researchers and keynote speakers will present how the AAC programme contributes to promote healthy lifestyles and social inclusion among older adults, linking it to other initiatives in the broader policy context of an Ageing Europe. A good practice guide, based on the programme impact evaluation, will outline how other fitness and recreational sport centres around Europe can replicate the methodology and successfully engage inactive older people in a long-term healthy lifestyle.
More information and a detailed agenda will follow.
