The idea of this project is to transfer this experience of Faculty of Sport Sciences of the University of Murcia (Spain) in organizing big local sport events to the organization of a big international sport event, with the participation of institutions that work in this field of several countries of Europe. The big event will be carried out with the help of volunteers of the countries involved in the project, and it will focus on the promotion of physical activity for the whole society, and also in social inclusion of people with cancer and disabilities, populations with important barriers for the practice of physical activity and sport.
The big sport event will be celebrated in Mar Menor (Region of Murcia), an ideal place for beach sports and water sports, with excellent facilities, professionals and a perfect climate for these activities. It will gather sport competitions, sport exhibitions and leisure sports activities to encourage the participation of citizens. The event aims to bring together more than 10000 people from different countries. The activities will be carried out in different scenarios, fully mobilizing the city for the event, with sport activities on the promenade, parks, sand and water of the beaches. In addition, the area will be conditioned for the celebration of the event with live music, a play area for little children, and different activities throughout the whole area of the event. More than 60 sports activities will be carried out simultaneously throughout the entire area, including horse riding, fishing, water polo, kayak-polo, scuba diving, sailing, canoeing, cycling, boxing, judo, rhythmic and aesthetic gymnastics, archery, orientation, etc.
The main objectives of this project are:
