description of organisation

Lapin Liikunta (LapLi) is an expert in physical education in Lapland. We get children and adults moving at sporting events and sport camps. We educate people who work with children, club operators and workplaces to get others moving and help them to develop their activities to be more effective. We advocate exercise to policy-makers. For us, exercise is a way of life!
The most important target groups of LapLi are children, youth and the people who get them moving: adults, workplaces and sport clubs.
We arrange events and camps where people can find the right form of exercise for them. We also arrange campaigns which inspire people to get active. We cooperate with sport clubs, schools and early childhood educators with the aim of making exercise the way of life of every resident of Lapland.

LapLi is a non-profit organization which was founded in 1995. We work for over a hundred sport clubs in the Lapland region. Our members are sport clubs and organizations providing exercise services.
