Put on your trainers because starting from 10 September Europe is celebrating European Week of Sport 2016! The aim of this annual event is to raise awareness about the benefits of leading an active lifestyle and participating in sport. Various activities will be organised at an EU, national, regional and local level all across Europe to get people of all ages and backgrounds involved.
We at EPALE value the role of sport and physical activity in adult learning and lifelong learning. Apart from the undeniable health benefits, sports are also good for teaching various life skills such as initiative and teamwork. Some even argue that physical activity can enhance learning ability. We have collated a list of interesting case studies and blog articles about sports and physical activity in adult learning, as well as practical resources on the topic.
