On September 3, 42 people come together to raise awareness of the importance of maintaining an active and healthy lifestyle, creating an impact on their lives and those around them.

We work to raise awareness about the importance of health and physical activity, while working on many other skills and have a lasting influence on society.

We want to and have succeeded in condemning sedentary lifestyles and promoting actions that promote physical activity. During the project we have analyzed the problems in detail and have proposed a multitude of ideas, several carried out in Asturias and Cantabria and others in the participating countries.

Yes, we have done it, we have improved our health in a fun and professional way through outdoor activities, at the same time we have worked on many other competences, related to communication skills and languages, tolerance, multiculturalism, learning about other cultures, respect, etc. 

"10 days that felt like 10 years"

The story began on September 3

The first few days we developed bonds among the participants, reflected on what was going to happen in the project, expectations, ways of working as a group, etc.

We made several trips to unique natural environments:

  • Mountain route in Picos de Europa, completing the Cares route, with more than 20 km along the Cares river gorge.
  • The whole team is ready to overcome their own limits, we go into the great adventure of canyoning, we descend a river, what an adrenaline rush!
  • We ascend to Pico Jano, a place with panoramic views of the entire eastern massif of Picos de Europa. We continue with energy and dance for a while in San Vicente de la Barquera, do not miss our flashmob on Youtube.

Zip-lines, debates on EU values, sunsets at sea, reflection on the beach, climbing, film making, motivational talks, cultural evenings, gymkhanas, a variety of sports, everything and much more on our social networks!
