Whereas opportunities for sports and movement exist plentiful, the current offers are not attractive to all the people.

“WannaGos” are those people, who would like to be physically active, but who do not find suitable offers: They are not much fun, or they are not readily available in the physical, social and emotional context where people are (e.g. work or on the way to). A result is the increased incidence of lifestyle diseases like diabetes, obesity or heart failure due to insufficient physical activity.

Therefore, in this project we want to investigate motivations and lifestyle parameters of “WannaGos” concerning physical activity.

 Furthermore, we want to develop suitable possibilities how to integrate movement offers into the people’s environments. Thus, we want to bring more joy of movement to people.

Accordingly, we will…

  • develop an in-depth understanding of motivations of “WannaGos” and of the reasons for lifestyle diseases,
  • investigate opportunities for integrating more movement into lifestyles and creating an increased motivation for physical activity,
  • explore social and financial benefits of movement towards health and wellbeing,
  • look into novel enablers for movement like gamification, movement-induced music generation, social software and others as well as
  • realize innovative movement opportunities.
