“Share&Shake” wants to SHARE a new educational method and SHAKE the young community. The project intends to meet “The EU Guidelines on Health Enhancing Physical Activity” (2008) requirement, asking for attention to be paid specifically to the physical and mental health problems caused by declining physical activity among young people and the concomitant increase in sedentary lifestyles and obesity (up to 80 % of school-age children engage in physical activity solely at school, while it is recommended that they have at least one hour of light physical activity every day).

The “Share&Shake” project undertakes formal and informal actions to develop a basis for a new competence in sport, which calls for action to develop the European dimension in sport. The project has three levels of innovation regarding: the educational phase at schools (Alcis method), the practice during EWOS European week of sport and an interactive part regarding dissemination. The project consortium is composed of partners from Italy, Portugal, Belgium, Poland and Greece, and it aims to realize an updated monitoring that can map out the state of play in physical education and sports activities. This can give an overview of how Member States defined the role of physical education and physical activities, or of how their own policies in this area are related to recent developments in the fields of health, education and sport.

Support and implementation of ALCIS method is approved and sponsored by Erasmus + Programme.

Why Out of the Box International

The seemingly ever-lasting depression of European economies has shaken the very foundations of many European societies. The shear rate of unemployment in Europe and the omnipresent environmental crisis coupled with the often frustratingly slow process of decision making in the EU, are calling for civil society actors to step in and fill the void.

In the aftermath of the 2008. economic crisis, the apprehension of falling under the spell of apathy of economic depression across the continent has not been easy to shake off. However, pinpointing the culprits for the current state of affairs on any particular EU decision maker is not the answer. Nonetheless, the fact remains that the current approach to the economic and environmental crisis hasn’t yet shown the affected citizens the light at the end of the tunnel.

As representatives of the civil society we feel the need to make our voice heard in the midst of the current debate on economic crisis. Being a social enterprise we offer new and feasible ideas in education and community work, creative cross-sectorial cooperation among different actors and strong networking coalitions to turn these dire economic challenges into possibilities through social entrepreneurship initiatives which aim at benefiting wide range of citizens, particularly vulnerable groups and those affected by the economic crisis.

Social entrepreneurship is a simple concept that has been put into practice by civil society actors for the benefit of a specific social group or people, and this is precisely what we want: to create projects and initiatives with fresh ideas in different policies, educational programs or tools, support businesses, empower cultural initiatives and offer different solutions to individuals, corporate bodies, everybody who believe that we can have more Creative, Innovative and Cohesive Europe.
