MOVE Handbook: A tool for promoting physical activity in socially disadvantaged groups

International Sport and Culture Association (ISCA)

The science is clear: physical activity is important for health and for physical and mental well-being. Keeping this in mind, we believe that everybody has the right to access physical activity and to enjoy the personal benefits of a physically active lifestyle. But studies also show that socially disadvantaged groups face barriers preventing them from taking up physical activity and realising these benefits.

With the MOVE project it has been our aim to enable the founding values of human dignity, equality and the well-being of the citizens to be put into action. I would like to thank all partners of the MOVE project and all who are committed to Moving ideas, Moving people and supporting the wellbeing of citizens. You are bringing the founding values of the European Union into action.

The Move Handbook is a tool conceived to help organisations to promote physical activity in socially disadvantaged groups and it is one of the most important results of the efforts and activities undertaken in the MOVE project.

The Handbook is structured in three main parts:

  • A short description of the MOVE project and the MOVE good practice collection
  • The MOVE guiding principles, illustrated with selected case studies
  • A quantitative summary of the practices collected in the MOVE good practice collection

Use this handbook to your advantage and start imagining what you can do in your nearest socially disadvantaged neighbourhood, involving the community and the best partners you can find out there...
