Our project arises from the need to increase awareness and understanding of the context of the European Union, especially with regard to the common values of the EU, the principles of unity and diversity, as well as its cultural identity, cultural awareness and its social and historical heritage, through the traditional games of each country, region or locality.
We intend that traditional games are a means, that through physical exercise, improving healthy physical activity, serve to exchange cultural identities that attend to diversity and promote interculturality among European countries.
For this, our project establishes different related and interconnected phases:
1-Research in the four countries of our consortium to create a battery of common traditional games.
2-Information about those traditional games
3-Awareness, through the identification of the culture and origin of each game.
4-Application in the formal and informal context, identifying the cultural identity of each country.
5-Training through the webinar to exchange experiences in the ETHNO-LEISURE museum.
6-Relation of traditional games with regeneration and recycling.
7-Relation between traditional games and their practice in nature, through the use of the natural environment, stressing the care of the environment, when we invade their land to practice physical exercise.
To respond to all these lines of action, we propose these specific objectives:
1-Carry out a research process in each country with the aim of collecting a battery of 20 traditional games.
2- Share and implement games between different countries.
3-Integrating traditional games in the formal and informal field, as a cultural element of taking advantage of leisure time, doing physical exercise.
4-Relate regeneration and recycling with the creation of material for traditional games.
5-Promote traditional games in the natural environment, raising awareness of its care.
