The Muoviamoci! call

A call to promote physical activity and sports in Turin as a means of prevention and of promoting a healthy lifestyle, inclusion, education and active citizenship.

Regular physical activity helps to improve people’s physical and mental health, quality of life and general well-being and promotes social inclusion, education, active citizenship and social skills.

In Italy, one in five children does not play sports and 34.5% of people aged 18 to 69 are sedentary. And yet, 55% of young people in Piedmont and Liguria see sports facilities as a very popular social gathering place.

The Muoviamoci! call is the result of the collaboration between the Planet Goal and the People Goal of the Compagnia di San Paolo Foundation, which aims to contribute to supporting and promoting physical activity and sports in the city of Turin as a means of preventing diseases and of promoting a healthy lifestyle, inclusion, education and active citizenship.

Specifically, it promotes the conversion of buildings, outdoor areas and green areas for sports use in the area of the city of Turin, supporting activities aimed at fostering the connection between physical activity and sports and promoting health, inclusion, educational pathways, active citizenship and social skills.

The final beneficiary of the call is the entire population of the municipality of Turin, with priority for the 0-29 age group and elderly people over the age of 65.

The total available funds are €2,000,000.

Requests must be submitted by 1pm on 15 April 2020 at the latest.

The call is part of the Mission Promoting well-being of the Planet Goal, in collaboration with the People Goal.
