Intercluster work session “How to increase physical-sports practice in school age?”

Kidscluster_Sessió pràctica físico-esportiva 2

Last Friday, October 17th, DUNA participated to the intercluster session “How to increase physical and sports practice in school age?”, organized by the clusters of sport (INDESCAT), children (KID’ S CLUSTER) and education technologies (Edutech Cluster).

We would like to highlight the great work done by Itik Consultoría Deporte & Ocio with the investigation entitled “The sports habits of schoolchildren in Catalonia” and particularly thank Jordi Viñas for his presentation of the study, promoted by the Catalan Sports Council.

In the last 10 years, the practice of physical activity and sport has grown greatly in all demographic segments of society, and it is necessary to tackle new challenges from the business fabric and from the different sectors involved.

If we look to the future, the detected trends are:

  • Individualisation of sports practice, also at school age
  • Use of unconventional spaces. Use of urban and natural public space
  • Sport and family / Family sport / Family sport / Family sport
  • Sport and ICT Social interaction and Image @e-sports

The session gave us a lot of valuable information that we will take into account in the elaboration of our projects, to reduce sedentarism and improve the well-being of children.
