PATHE project is a long term process or never ending story

The PATHE Seminar 2009 was held in Copenhagen from 24th to 26th of October. It was organised under the ethos of alliance “for” and “with” PATHE Associate Partners, ISCA office and other PATHE partners. The aim was to inspire,  motivate, learn of the good examples and exchange information about our work on the political level in order to inspire and motivate the »designer« of national strategy and find the answer to the question “how to implement national strategy in the association working strategy” in the world of health and physical activity.

Stakeholders include WHO-European Regional Office, UNESCO, ENGSO, TAFISA, ICSSPE, CESS, Local Authorities in partner countries and HEPA Network.
