The network “Cities for Sports” assembled 26 European cities and institutions on the first meeting.

About 40 participants discussed about their experiences and upcoming challenges in the field of physical activity promotion.

Emphases were laid on the specific target groups of children, youth, adults and elderly. It was shown that physical activity promotion of elder people will be one of the most challenging tasks of the sports and health administrations in the upcoming years. The structures and base to search together for practical and useful solutions and approaches were put.

Prof. Schott from the University of Stuttgart bridged the gab to science and showed were programmes should set.
