Physical inactivity observed in the developed countries is a very important factor of mortality risk and Greece is among the countries with the highest rates of inactivity among both the younger and older ages of the population.

With the ‘Greece on the move’, initiative, we aim to establish one Sunday each year when all Greeks will engage in any form of sporting activity they choose. The activities will be uncompetitive and include road-racing, biking, walking, low-intensity exercises, accompanied by lectures, shows and information on the health benefits of physical activity and other factors, and will be addressed to all the family, throughout Greece.
