Summary:

The proposed project titled LifeAge aims to contribute to raising awareness of the need for physical activity as the basis of healthy lifestyle by changing habits of adults and elderly. The reason for undertaking this project is to tackle the challenges of growing obesity and assess the health consequences of ageing and sedentary lifestyle among adults and elderly in developing countries involved in the project and to raise awareness about importance of active lifestyle and healthy nutrition in all project partner countries. This will be done by including mature adults (50 – 64 years and +65 years; primarily those who are overweight, obese, low strength, sarcopenia or with low level of physical activity) into regular sports activities accompanied by indoor and outdoor activities and workshops on healthy nutrition. It combines physical activity and balanced diet as the most effective way to increase general health, mental development and performance in Adults and Elderly and reduce the risk of chronic diseases, sarcopenia and low strength and functional capacity.

The overall objective of the project is to assess the health consequences of ageing and sedentary lifestyle in 5 European countries (Spain, Italy, Finland, Ireland and Latvia) and to promote physical activity and exercise as a key tool for a healthy and active ageing.
