In Common Sports
The initiative involves 350 participants and sees the Municipality of Cesena as a member of a partnership composed of bodies and organisations from five EU member states. The goal is the development of effective strategies for the diffusion of healthy lifestyles among population groups that are less frequent exercisers, evaluating the motivational aspect as a lever for regular and continuous sports practice in old age.
The benefits of regularly conducted physical activity in the over 60s are studied and monitored by measuring physical and cognitive performance.
From 2021 the project continues with In Common Sport +: Fit, Food and Fun for Elderly! which combines adapted physical activity for this population group with the study of eating habits in order to prevent certain age-related physical problems and promote a healthy lifestyle.
