The projects themselves test forms of physical activity promotion that are related to settings and/or target groups in a wide variety of formats. nexus führt die begleitende Evaluation durch. The participatory approach aims to achieve experience-rich, practical, and targeted recommendations for action through the active participation of the evaluated individuals.

For the evaluation, a catalogue of indicators will be scientifically determined and revised during the course of the project using suitable survey instruments. All survey instruments will be adapted to the variety of approaches to the promotion of physical activity. The aim is to obtain statements on the effectiveness of the projects and to condense these statements into target-specific recommendations for action in a concluding workshop.
