The Day in Mountain Project is a 18-month-long Erasmus Plus small collaborative partnership between four partner organizations:
• KARASU GENCLIK, SANAT VE SPOR KKULUBU DERNEGI, Turkey, Sakarya City
• L’ORMA Societa sportiva Delettantistica a R.L. – L’ORMA, Italy, Milano
• NGO SPORT VIV, – Croatia, Samobor citys and
• Mountaineering association TUHOBIC – MAT (Planinarsko društvo „Tuhobic“), Croatia, Rijeka that also acts as the coordinator of the project.
This project was designed to offer children and their families the possibility to rediscover the joy of spending time in the nature, to encourage them to do sports, to decrease the negative effects of sedentary lifestyle.
The so-called modern life has brought some unexpected challenges that have a huge impact on the wellbeing of human beings: we spend most of our lives indoors, sitting in front of a computer or television screen, forgetting how to be part of nature. The lack of exercise leads to many health risks such as being overweight, high blood pressure, depression and lack of self-confidence.
It has been scientifically proven that spending time in the nature “recharges our batteries” and is good for our mental health.
The aim of the project is to allow pre-school and elementary school children to spend quality time in nature by ensuring human resources that will be well trained to guide organised tours for children in nature and mountaineering or mountain climbing trips.
The kick-off meeting of the project was held in Croatia in February, 2020, where the representatives of the partner organizations discussed the planned project activities.
We are very proud of being part of this wonderful initiative that focuses on one of our priorities, offering the best possible training experience to children, their families and teachers.
We are ready to climb any mountain!
