The general objective for undertaking this project is to tackle the challenges of growing obesity and its special objective is to assess the health consequences of ageing and sedentary lifestyle among adults and elderly in developing countries involved in the project as well as to raise awareness about importance of active lifestyle and healthy nutrition in all countries involved.

This will be done by including adults (50 – 64 years and +65 years; primarily those who are overweight, obese, with low strength, sarcopenia/dynapenia or with low level of physical activity) into regular sports activities accompanied by indoor and outdoor events and workshops on healthy nutrition.

It combines physical activity and balanced diet as the most effective way to increase general health, mental development in adults and elderly and reduce the risk of chronic diseases, sarcopenia/dynapenia, low strength and functional capacity.

The innovative aspect of the LifeAge Project is based on the answer to a real need, supported by scientific studies and European level statistics and research, by providing a friendly-user tool to elderly people 55+ not only in the consortium partner countries but in the rest of the EU, by means of using ICT devices (as smartphones and tablets) to support physical activity in their lives as an important part of the daily routine leading to a new, healthy, lifestyle.
