ENoLL is proud to present People Olympics: New Social game promising healthy and active Living for all Launched at Biovision 2013, who will be joining us at the 4th ENoLL Living Lab Summer School.
People Olympics: 10.000s strong teams competing for their city WellBeing, fun and social
transformation. A social innovation game based on collective physical activity competition
Social Innovations are innovations that are not only good for society but also enhance society capacity to act. Social innovations take place across boundaries between the public sector, the private sector, the third sector and the household. European Commission DG Enterprise Social Innovation Competition.
The People Olympics game is based on competing cities. Each city has a team of 10.000 participants, which reflect that city demographics. The members of the team track their physical activity trough portable devices, which provide all the physiological data. A system collects all data and updates the real time cumulative fitness activities at city level, and compares it with the value of the other competing cities.
People Olympics enables a totally innovative new experience, new sense of belonging, new emotions, new relationship and healthy competition, and a compelling motivation for a physically active and healthy living: People exercising at home, at work, in the city and on the go, get new excitement, healthier living and avoid boredom. People Olympics is the motivational mechanism par excellence and is dedicated to all, young and old, male
and female, collaborating and competing trough their daily physical, social and co-creation activities in their normal living scenarios.
This approach promises to change the behavior of people because it involves a collective action, which is an extraordinary motivating factor influencing people ability to change. PEOPLE OLYMPICS is a disruptive approach, conceived by Roberto Santoro, President of ESoCE Net (the European Society of Concurrent Engineering, member of the ENoLL Council, both non profit associations focusing on Collaborative Social Innovation), for societal change at large, with the objective of focusing collective intelligence to the Joint Intent of addressing today Societal Challenges.This major initiative has been announced by Roberto Santoro himself at the BIOVision Conference: the World Life Sciences Forum, held March 24-26, 2013 in Lyon, France.
