TCA Description

Themes and goals:

It is well known that physical activity boosts brain health and is inseparable from cognitive development and mental health. “Active Bodies = Active Minds” stems from this holistic approach and focuses on integrating physical activity methods into Erasmus+ projects, institutions and personal life, and at the same time exploring the ways of how to make Erasmus+ projects more physically active.


The main goals of this thematic seminar are to:

  • Stimulate new ideas for Erasmus+ international cooperation projects, which would promote physical activity in educational institutions;
  • Provide cross-sectoral networking opportunities on the topic of physical activity in Erasmus+ projects and educational institutions;
  • Raise awareness of the added value of sports and physical activity in education and training;
  • Exchange good practices;
  • Be physically active and participate in “Erasmus+ Run” event by joining Vilnius Marathon on 8th September 2024, and raising awareness of Erasmus+ Programme.
Expected results:

The participants of this thematic seminar will:

  • Find partners for the future Erasmus+ projects;
  • Experience working methods, tools and approaches on how to increase the level of physical activity in learning processes;
  • Explore good practices;
  • Gain better understanding of the effects and the importance of physical activity as means to increase the wellbeing of target groups, communities of the organization and workers on the daily basis;
  • Build a community through joint experience with former and current Erasmus+ project participants and other stakeholders by participating in a mass grassroot sports event;
  • Explore how promotion of physical activity can be part of organizations sustainability approach.
