People Olympic for healthy and active living: a People Driven Social Innovation Initiative.
People Olympics is a game between cities from all over the world. Each city has a team of 10.000 participants, which reflect its demographics. Team members can track their physical activity through portable devices, which measure diverse physiological data. A system collects all data and updates the real time cumulative fitness activities at city level. It also compares it with the values of the other competing cities.
The aim of the workshop will be to work collectively, identify opportunities and solutions for the 2014 piloting phase (by presenting evidences and experiences of the event already conducted and the ones planned), and plan the large experimentations scheduled for 2015.
