Ancient Greek games and the European traditional games (regarding physical exercise from other European countries) reflect the European culture and civilization related to health promotion and well-being. This is a valuable world heritage which must be conserved throughout the generations.
Therefore, the traditional games that the present project discovers and provides encourage exchanges between town districts and different regions and promote the maintenance of cultural European roots.The tradition games produce a bodily and collaborative activity, which are factors of physiological, psychological and social health. So, the traditional European and the ancient Greek games that HEALTHY project propose to incorporate in schooling are helping to converge students’ diversity while trigger them to adopt a healthy lifestyle. In this way the European Cultural heritage is not only maintained but brings people together and contributes to more cohesive societies through physical activities.
