According to the EU Action Plan on Childhood Obesity 2014-2020, “the high level of overweight and obesity in children and young people is an area of particular concern. According to estimates from the WHO’s Childhood Obesity Surveillance Initiative (COSI), around 1 in 3 children in the EU aged 6-9 years old were overweight or obese in 2010. This is a worrying increase on 2008, when estimates were 1 in 4.”
The strategic goal of Karate - Sport at School project is to promote in primary schools motor activities to tackle children sedentary lifestyle and hypokinesia through an innovative approach based on recent neurosciences researches, transfer good practice and the creation of a network among National Karate Federation of Italy, France, Germany, Poland, Portugal and Spain.
Expected results are an improvement in children motor abilities, learning abilities and social behaviour; strengthening of cooperation between schools and sport clubs and among National Federation to promote sport for all and offer high quality programs.
