1.Within your specific national project and geographic location (country), what are the most important issues for the PATHE - Physical Activity Towards a Healthier Europe to address in order to better the health status, health promotion and sport/health activities?


In our Project the most important issues for the PATHE are:


-        Prevention of risk behaviours: drug addiction, alcoholism, etc for teenagers.

-        Prevention of obesity in school ages.


Health Physical Activity

The purpose is to achieve that the sport and the physical activity are part of a healthy lifestyle, so this physical activity is healthy for the aptitudes of each person.


Hygienic habits

The purpose is to teach kids to get hygienic habits with sport - before and after practising sport. For example: to have a shower after doing sport, changing of cloth, etc.


2. What partnerships/activities do you feel are necessary within your national project/country that would help further the efforts of ISCA and your Association with PATHE in providing increased and more comprehensive services for national organizations in the Health/health promotion activities?


We think that the activities and partnerships which are necessary are:

-        Activities: physical activities, learning courses, conferences, seminars, meetings, etc.

-        Partnerships:

o      Catalunya Government: Education department, General Sport department and Health department.

o      Educational centres and Parents associations.

o      Sport Councils

o      Town Halls


3. What are the adaptations/innovations/changes in your association via PATHE   that you have either implemented or developed that has helped provide a more effective or efficient health/health promotion/physical activities? 


Our association has developed learning courses for primary and secondary sport teachers in which they work in sport activities, health, etc.

Now we are working to be able to develop a new extra school Sport program of health in which we pretend to promote physical activities through a healthy way in ages from 3 until 99 years old.
