Foggia aims to become “an open-air gym”.  Various Sports for Everyone projects illustrated in the Municipality

A meeting took place yesterday with a large delegation from the Council and the members of the third and fourth Council Commission on the social role of sport and the ways to promote and enhance it to improve the well-being of the city community. Participating in the discussion, which took place in the council chamber of Palazzo di Città, were the representatives of Sports and Health: Stefano Gobbimanager of social and third sector projects and Francesco Toscano, Puglia coordinator. Sports and Health is the state company that deals with the development of sport in Italy to encourage, support and promote grassroots sport, enhancing its educational role and social integration for correct lifestyles. The various sports for all projects which include targeted interventions on parks, neighborhoods and prisons were illustrated to the city councilors who attended. In particular, some of the public tenders currently being published aimed at bodies, amateur sports associations and the third sector were presented to encourage widespread physical activity, with particular attention to disadvantaged people.

Among the projects that have attracted the attention of the administration: those relating to sports in the parkswhich provides forms of 50% co-financing for the installation of equipment for outdoor sports activities, and “Bikes in common”, designed to promote cycling mobility with activities in schools, but also with initiatives aimed at promoting cycle tourism. All these actions, as well as the other projects presented to encourage sports initiatives on specific targets, always involve the direct involvement of city associations and sports promotion entities. For this reason, it is necessary for all operators in the sector to be informed and equip themselves to be able to participate in public tenders that are active or about to be published. The contacts of Sports and Health have ensured maximum commitment to help local associations in structuring and writing tenders. Just as an extended meeting has been agreed in the near future to illustrate all the opportunities guaranteed by the Sport and Health tenders.
