The “Mens sana in corpore sano” network is formed by the Liceo Ginnasio Aristosseno, IIS Maria Pia and ITES Pitagora of Taranto with the aim of enhancing the culture of “wellbeing” through the adoption of healthy lifestyles.
In order to do this, we will create residential sports camps with a high innovative content that, through sports sciences, encourage the acquisition of 21st century skills by school members and counteract attitudes that may cause addictions to drugs or other risk factors (racism, cyberbullying, violence, ‘abuse of smoking, alcohol and drugs).
The Lucan Sailing Club of Policoro (Matera), Local Health Company / SERD, APDI, Fijlkam, Fipav of Taranto, collaborate in the realization of the activities.
The project is funded by the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research.
