WHO WAS MEANT TO DO IT?
WHAT DID THEY DO?
Participants were asked by special invitation to attend a work shop for stakeholders.
HOW DID THEY DO IT?
In the first year of the project, it was important to inform stakeholders and others about the Coast Alive project. The overall aim is to reduce physical and mental barriers hindering physical activity among the in-active parts of the population and to help the beginning of a new pattern of light and enjoyable exercise for people who, for various reasons, are in-active today. Additionally, to show young children that walking and cycling can be fun, and thereby improve their future health and quality of life.
Success was to be measured in the short term by:
- Participation (number of people attending): At least 15 people
- Great ideas for how to co-operate regionally and how to best spend the budget of 10.000 Euro.
- Degree of local/regional interest in participating to remove barriers
Success will be measured in the long term by:
- A more active population with improved health, due to better habits of regular walking and cycling.
HOW MANY PARTICIPATED?
Number of workshop participants: 22
DID IT WORK?
When the thematic groups under Work Package 2 were established, Rogaland had chosen “Barriers”. As a method to involve the regional stakeholders, this workshop resulted in lots of ideas born and recorded. The best ideas were to be implemented during the project period, for example the “Make a new outdoor friend” scheme.
WAS IT SUCCESSFUL?
The workshop was carried out according as planned and was attended by 22 people from the key stakeholders, more than the anticipated number of 15. The short term objectives were met and these activities were important building blocks in helping to reach the long term objectives. Nothing significantly different would be done for a similar stakeholders meeting in the future.
