Children are real fighters!

Last Satrurday in Gdynia children could try their hand at cycling competition called MTB C.Hartwig Gdynia Maraton that was organised by Gdynia Sports Centre. Young cyclists had to cover a distance 1,5 km, 8 km or 12 km, respectively. The best cyclist was 6-year old Borys and the youngest contestants had just 2 years old.

Many attractions waited for all children at the finishing line and it was amazing to see their big smiles:)

Congratulations to all cyclists - we are very proud of you!

Clean up the World

‘Free the city from waste, degradation &
contribute to more sustainable urban spaces,
clean and inclusive’

Puliamo il Mondo (PiM) is the Italian edition of Clean up the World. The scope of Clean up the World is to inspire and empower community groups, schools, businesses, and local governments to carry out community-based activities through a range of initiatives from clean-ups, tree planting activities to recycling, water management and energy conservation projects.
Brought to Italy in 1993 by Legambiente who has taken on the role as organizing committee. It is present throughout the national territory thanks to the untiring work of more than 1,000 groups of "environmental volunteers. The initiative is organized at the local level in collaboration with associations, corporations, committees and local municipalities.
This year PiM saw over 600 thousand volunteers in 1,700 municipalities and 4,000 locations participate in the largest voluntary environmental initiative organized in Italy by Legambiente in collaboration with Rai (public national TV).
The Municipality of Forte dei Marmi (CFdM) has been an active member of this campaign for several years, together with the schools from the Istituto Comprensivo of Forte dei Marmi. Every year they clean up the public beaches and the dunes protected areas of the Victoria Apuan district. This year’s clean-up activities have involved the primary school children that have adhered to the ‘Move up to be healthy & happy’ project, together with 2 secondary school classes.
The day started with the children taking a small excursion on foot from the school premises to the public beaches (approximately 6 km round trip). On arrival the children formed a circle and did some stretching exercises before cleaning the beaches and the dunes. The morning included an environmental educational lesson with a qualified guide from the dunes protected area. Before returning to school the children had a healthy nutritional picnic in the nearby park behind the beaches.
Internationally Clean Up the World engages an estimated 35 million volunteers in 130 countries each year, making it one of the largest community based environmental campaigns in the world. The clean-up flagship event takes places the 3rd weekend in September every year.
Clean Up the World is held in partnership with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP).

Winners of art contest “How do I spend time after school”

We know the winners of art contest “How do I spend time after school” in Gdynia.

We are very proud of the students from Gdynia’s primary schools who spend their free time actively. What do the young inhabitants from Gdynia after school? The majority of students prefer activities such as cycling, playing football, outdoor fun but also fishing, gymnastics and rugby.

We hope that all children will remember about the physical activity every day in line with the idea of the project “Move to be healthy and happy.”
