ACTIVE proposes a new and fresh approach to engaging European children between 5-8 years old.

The ACTIVE partnership will co-produce a cutting edge cartoon animation that tells positive, inspiring and fun stories about healthier living, focusing on healthy eating and physical activity. The animation, along with a tailor-made teaching pack to support the integration of the cartoon animation itself into formal education, will show how a healthy diet along with physical activity can significantly improve their life and their future.

The PASEO project intends to strengthen capacities for the promotion of health through physical activity among sedentary older people in 15 nations. Nations are represented by a scientific institution (associated partner) and (in most nations) a (non-) governmental institution (coll. Partner). Capacity strengthening will focus primarily on building intersectoral structures and intraorganisational means for the promotion of physical activity among sedentary older people. Mechanisms to strengthen capacities are intended to be sustained after the project has ended.

The EUropean Network for Action on Aging and Physical Activity (EUNAAPA), established in 2005, and formalised at the end of the EUNAAPA Project (DG SANCO 200536; 2006-2008). It is a thematic, collaborative network, currently consisting of 150 members working in the field of Physical Activity and Aging from 26 different countries and from different disciplines specifically science, professionals (e.g. physiotherapists), elderly representatives, policy. The EUNAAPA mission is to improve the health, wellbeing and independence of older people throughout Europe by the promotion of evidence based physical activity.

3. provide information, and expert advice to policy makers, providers and professionals in the fields of aging, physical activity, and health;
4. influence the development of educational curricula and standards of competence for professionals involved in the provision of physical activity for older people;
5. develop synergies among researchers, providers and professionals in the fields of aging, physical activity, and health;
6. support policymakers in intersectorial approaches to the promotion of physical activity among all older people;
7. cooperate with other organizations relevant to the promotion of physical activity among all older people;
8. involve older people in the development and implementation of network activities.
