Now We Move България 2
Start date: Aug 1, 2016, End date: Oct 31, 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The EVS project Now We MOVE Bulgaria 2 (NWM BG 2) is based on the NowWeMOVE Bulgaria campaign and aims to contribute to the achievement of its objectives. NWM BG, on another hand, is part of the European NWM campaign, tackling lack of physical activity and its negative consequences. The ideas of the campaign and the issues that it is trying to solve are presented in this short video The NWM BG campaign and EVS project based on it are essential to our country, which is the least active European country (78% of Bulgarians never participate in sport and physical activity, Eurobarometer 2014), but also have an impact on local communities and even on European level as a whole, by promoting European values, volunteering and healthy lifestyle. We think it is particularly important for Bulgarian young people be have the possibility of contact with young people from other European countries, who will present their own experience and culture and who will motivate them to be active and to start positive change in mention areas.The EVS projects related to the NowWeMOVE Bulgaria campaign, and the events part of the campaign, creates opportunities for three young people from different European countries to become EVS volunteers in the BG Be Active Association situated in Plovdiv, Bulgaria. The main topic of the project and the activity of the organization is promoting regular physical activity and "sport for all" and the benefits from them in different aspects - physical activity (sports) and health, sport and its impact on young people, social inclusion through sport, education through sport, etc.The volunteers will acquire new knowledge and skills (especially soft skill) in various fields through their participation in the coordination of the NowWeMOVE Bulgaria campaign, which in turn is part of the pan-European NowWeMove campaign, initiated by ISCA (International Association for Sports and Culture). This pan-European element is a prerequisite for the sustainability of the activities of the volunteers even beyond the project.On the other hand, the EVS volunteers will be able to contribute to the development of the campaign by sharing their ideas and experience and the traditions of their countries in the field of physical activity for health. This will help the BG Be active association in one of its main activities - identification and introduction of European best practices in health-enhancing physical activity.The project is designed to correspond to some main priorities of the Erasmus+ programme:- Fight against youth unemployment – the project focuses on developing professional skills and competences, which will be especially important in the labour market;- Fight against the increasing levels of inactivity among the European citizens and the resulting negative quality of life – in this regard in the Erasmus+ program (2014-2020) a whole chapter is dedicated to sport;- Multicultural environment and values – ability to work in a multicultural environment, as well as developing communication skills; being aware of other cultures and nationalities, accepting the differences, and being tolerant;The project NowWeMOVE Bulgaria 2 will give the volunteers a unique opportunity to acquire and develop knowledge, skills and experience. Through their participation in a wide range of activities, they will improve some of their key competences and will acquire a wide range of skills such as teamwork, project management skills, and communication skills. Due to the pan-European nature of the NowWeMOVE campaign, the volunteers will have the chance to continue to work on the campaign in their own country. For this purpose, BGBA will provide the contacts of the respective national coordinators as well as recommendations for the activities carried out during the project.BGBA and the sending organizations, from their part, will increase the capacity and will acquire fresh inspiration with regard to international and intercultural communication, which will contribute for more and better opportunities for networking.
