Sports can help young people develop physical skills, improve intellectual and cognitive abilities, make friends, have fun and socialize, learn to work in groups, acquire values linked to solidarity, honesty, and effort, and improve their self-esteem. Today we remember this empowerment because July 15 is World Youth Skills Day, a United Nations (UN) General Assembly initiative.
Here we are at the beginning of summer, one of the most anticipated seasons of the year, especially for those who like to combine vacations with water sports.
Portugal has one of the longest coastlines among European countries, more than 800 km, and extraordinary beaches, allied to good weather and excellent infrastructures for water sports, tourism, and leisure.
Move Sports is proud to be associated with one of the biggest professional soccer clubs in Portugal and Europe, Sport Lisboa e Benfica (SLB), with a new summer program of which we are official agents. Benfica is one of the 3 most prominent clubs in the country and the biggest in associates and fans.
We've talked a lot about Lisbon, but there is so much to say about one of the most fascinating European capitals.
Lisbon is a relatively small city compared to most big capitals, which gives it a friendly and welcoming dimension and softens the impersonal side of the big cities.
It has an intense white light and is bathed by the Tagus, one of the rivers with the broadest estuary in Europe (yes, it looks like the sea!), making it ideal for relaxing on long walks along its banks.
Sports have played a central role in the post-Covid recovery of cities, countries, and even in the promotion of touristic destinations, a little everywhere.
Nowadays, it has become clear that companies gain by investing in the development of more empathetic teams, whether through team-building initiatives, personal development workshops, or social gatherings, among other strategies that stimulate personal relationships and therefore build stronger and more cohesive teams and companies.
On June 10, we commemorate Portugal Day, and so today we remember the recognized importance that sports have had in the social construction of the country, especially since the 20th century.
