Exercise your way to a better business
The project aims to create a comprehensive based approach to tackle the issue of health and physical activity (HEPA), using the worksite as the most promising venue of delivery. ACTIVE BUSINESSES will become a comprehensive program of activities to be easily applied within different working environments in order to improve the health and physical conditions of workers, employees, entrepreneurs and managers.
The prevalence and impact of physical inactivity is one of the biggest problems of public healthcare and economy in Europe and worldwide.
The recommendations of EU consider the working environment as basic and most appropriate environment for the support and promotion of the physically active and healthy lifestyle.
The project is based on a practice led approach. The primary focus of the project is to advance knowledge about practice and to advance knowledge within practice. Analytical research will be based on contemporary evidence and on the practical experience and knowledge gained through the implementation of the project in practice.
