Purpose and goal
The main goal was to produce innovative solutions that were developed together with the target group and the society stake holders. As an enabler to implement the new approach and social innovation tool; physical literacy, in the context of public environments, we have engaged actors in the community planning process in order to bring about change at the system level. In this way we have also fulfilled the greater purpose; to give children and young people the opportunity to develop an active and healthy life and to create attractive and sustainable communities.
Expected results and effects
The project´s outcome and results have contributed to our work of taking steps towards the predestined effects in the application. We have spread the innovations to more than ten other actors, there is good documentation about Mötesplats Stöcke that can be used in, for example, a procurement and several innovations have taken important steps on the way to the use of actors outside the project consortium. In addition, a process together with Umeå University has begun with the goal of being able to offer an academic course in physical literacy by 2024.
Planned approach and implementation
The project has been divided into six work packages with a responsible project partner for each package. Everyone has worked in different ways with our three main areas: (1) Innovations through positioning (2) innovations through product development and (3) knowledge-enhancing innovations. For each package, a special plan for implementation has been taken in addition to the common one for which the project management was responsible. It was a favorable organization for us as all project parties thus got a bigger role and contributed to more processes.
