Promoting Green Strategies in Sport
PROGRESS is an Erasmus+ sport project that aims to improve physical and mental health through sports activities, with a specific focus on promoting outdoor physical activities between parents and children. By integrating new technologies and gamification, we strive to create a fun and engaging environment that encourages participation and fosters stronger parent-child interactions.
Children experience freedom when they play outside. Outdoor play is a natural way for children of all ages to do physical activity. It’s good for children’s health and well-being to be physically active through play. Being active burns energy and can help prevent illnesses in adulthood.

try new activities

A parent playing with their child outdoors builds the child’s self-esteem, helps the child learn about the world, provides opportunities for the child to learn new skills, and builds the bond between parent and child.
The PROGRESS team, comprising organizations from Romania, Italy, Belgium, Greece, Serbia, Slovakia and Bulgaria, is determined to help address sedentarism and need for varied skills development in youth through this project.
Best practices gathering, research, development of learning tools, creation of a mobile application, local events and the formulation of a EU policy – all part of the PROGRESS journey.
