Active Ageing Festival Event Manual

The “Active Ageing Festival Manual” is an outcome of the ACTIVE AGEING FESTIVAL project, co-funded by the Erasmus+ Sport Programme, under the topic Small Collaborative Partnerships. This manual is intended to serve as a guide to potential local organizers of sports events for seniors and as a management tool for sport organizations. It is created to support the efforts of all motivated organizations and individuals into organizing successful sporting events promoting physical activity and sport among elderly people. This manual suggests what to think about before, during and after when organizing a ACTIVE AGEING FESTIVAL event.
