Park(ing) Day for Fitness Manual is ready!

By BgBeActive

The project partners have finalized the Manual with practical steps on organizing Park(ing) Day for Fitness intervention. This short manual is intended to inform and guide grassroots sports organisations to understand how to practically build their own park(ing) day spot (P-spot) and use it to practise physical activity, supporting local causes and activist purposes. The Manual can be accessed at this link.

The mission of the Park(ing) Day for Fitness events is to draw attention to the many (untapped) possibilities that our cities offer for physical activity, the need for more open spaces where people can exercise safely, and further, to provoke a public debate on how to adapt in times of crisis and improve the quality of the urban environment.

Park(ing) Day for Fitness builds on the existing practices and guidelines provided by Rebar, where BG Be Active and the project consortium are adding an element of a multi-sport day event to offer activities that promote active lifestyles and engage the public.

Park(ing) Day for Fitness events will be held in the third week of September (16-22 September).

Park(ing) day for Fitness is funded by the European Union. The project coordinator is BG Be Active, and the other partner organizations are Placemaking Europe, Association Sport for all Suceava (AJSPT Suceava), V4 SPORT FOUNDATION, Azur Sport Sante, and XsentrikArts. Views and opinions expressed are however those of the author(s) only and do not necessarily reflect those of the European Union or EACEA.
