PROJECT OBJECTIVES

Challenging teenagers in their own fields and areas of interest, PEGASO – Fit 4 Future - aims at promoting a sustainable change towards healthy lifestyles, with a holistic and multidisciplinary approach. Pivotal elements of the PEGASO strategy are:

  • Developing self-awareness,
  • Enhancing and sustaining motivation,
  • Promoting behavioural change towards a healthy lifestyle.

RESEARCH IMPACT

PEGASO strives to engage and encourage European adolescents to adopt healthier lifestyles, making informed and supported changes away from poor dietary or sedentary habits.

With obesity on the rise across the EU and representing a major current and future public health challenge, PEGASO explores how innovative technologies such as serious games and wearable sensors can be coupled with behavioural and lifestyle expertise to address this problem.

The impact of the project will be to enhance the well-being of current and future generations across Europe.
