Date: July 23-24, 2022
Place: Ventspils, Latvia
Organizer: Latvian Sports Federations Council
Promote participation in sport and physical outdoor activities on the beach for the European citizens from all segments of the population, especially focusing on multigenerational families, using beaches and waterside areas as the main setting.
Main activities will be the organisation of the European Family and Sports-For-All Beach Games in Latvia and Portugal. Offering outdoor activities in beach and waterside areas brings a fresh approach and ties inactivity into related societal challenges to provide a concept of high value, which is easy to implement and has a long-lasting legacy. The BeActive Beach Games will represent an opportunity to activate existing public and open spaces for sports and physical activity, promote an active and healthy lifestyle for people, and bring the local community together around a regular event connecting families internally and externally with other citizens together and with their living environment. Furthermore, it is vital to promote the importance of exercise at a young age as it plants the early seeds for a lifetime of meaningful physical activity, which is why the project focuses on engaging the whole family.
