Sports was included in EU competences with the Lisbon Treaty. The European Union is using the definition of sport, which was adopted by the Council of Europe in 1992 and published in the "European Sport Charter" which was updated in 2001. The Council of Europe defines sports as any form of physical activity that occurs through coincidental or organized participation with the aim of being physically fit and expressing or improving mental health, creating social relations or achieving a competitive outcome at all levels. Physical education not only contributes to people’s immediate fitness and good health but also helps people to perform and understand physical activity better with positive lifelong repercussions. Moreover, physical education brings about transferable knowledge and skills,such as teamwork, cultivates respect, body and social awareness and provides a general understanding of the 'rules of the game' which people can readily make use of in life situations. Physical activity is a fundamental means of improving physical and mental health. For too many  people, however, it has been removed from everyday life, with dramatic effects for health and well-being. Physical inactivity is estimated to account for nearly 600 000 deaths per year. Tackling this leading risk factor would reduce the risks of cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, hypertension, some forms of cancer and psychological disorders. In addition, sport is one of the keys to counteracting the current epidemic diseases that is posing a new global challenge to public health. Physical activity is not just a public health issue; it also addresses the well-being of communities and investment in future generations. Countries need to reverse the trend towards inactivity and create conditions across Europe in which people can strengthen their health by making physical activity part of everyday life.

Constant changes in the economic, social and cultural life of the society necessitate constant renewal of the knowledge and skills required by today's living conditions. With this Project, local and international activities will be carried out. By the help of distance educational applications (modules), people who are from all walks of life will have equal and open learning opportunities based on ICT.
