On 10th of November 2021, our Pilot City Novo Mesto organised online their 2nd co-creation workshop to present the solutions and programmes developed for the Češča vas Sports and Recreation Park as part of Varcities. It was attended by more than 25 participants.
Peter Geršič, VARCITIES Project Manager at the Municipality of Novo mesto pointed out in the introductory words that the project had originated before the Covid-19 pandemic, with the health crisis further reinforcing the need to encourage people to move, especially children and adolescents. Peter presented in details VS3 : Interconnection of sports, recreational and therapeutic activities, programmes, and facilities. He pointed out that for some people the motivation for choosing to be more physically active might also be the option of using high-tech solutions in recording the parameters of movement provided by VS4.
Participants of the workshop were split up into the three thematic groups that dealt with different topics:
- programmes for sports clubs;
- programmes for children and the young − schools, kindergartens;
- programmes for the elderly and the vulnerable
All groups cooperated constructively and provided excellent suggestions for development of Novo Mesto’s Pilot.
