In the historical 1928 Hall of the Amsterdam Olympic Stadium, volunteers from eight EU countries, staff of the organizations involved in the MEW project and general public gathered on 11 October 2019 for a public event organized by IMBA Europe. Italy, Portugal and Romania were represented by a remarkable number of volunteers.
During the event, two outputs of the project, the MEW book and the Model of Action, a practical guide to increase physical activity levels, were illustrated and distributed among participants.
Volunteers gave their testimonies of the experience with the experimentation of a programme to become more active and lead a healthier life, showing the impressive results they have achieved also as to psychological and social wellbeing. Trainers and staff of involved organizations gave their contribution with oral presentations, conveying the passion they had put in the project activities.
Volunteers were awarded the official certificate of “Volunteer of Sport” and undersigned the memorandum of association of the European Network for Health. This Network, which is the final output of the MEW project, will keep on delivering the message of the MEW project and will organize initiatives aimed at increasing physical activity levels in Europe, together with healthy and environment-friendly life styles.
