1130 participants, 23 sports activities
First ever BeActive Beach Games were held in the urban environment of Kipsala beach and Lucavsala beach area in Riga, Latvia. BeActive Beach Games were organised to promote the possibility of involving very different groups of society – people of different ages and different physical opportunities. Along with traditional and known beach sports such as beach football and beach volleyball, BeActive Beach Games in Riga also demonstrated less-known beach activities and opportunities for changing, adapting or re-designing game rules according to capabilities and availabilities of players. Special attention was paid on how to involve families, with their members of different generations and how to create an environment for involving people with disabilities and how to reach the various socially vulnerable groups of society.
