LE MOULIN À VENT PRODUCTIONS INNOVATES IN THE OPEN AIR WITH PARC ACTIF
At the beginning of the pandemic, Le Moulin à vent Productions set its engine of ideas in motion. It came up with new forms of outdoor activities that could be carried out in “free practice” or event “semi-supervised” mode by families while respecting physical distancing measures.
The result was an innovative project for the creation of a Fun Hebertism Course, entitled LA GRANDE AVENTURE DANS TON PRAC! which won over the selection committee of the PARC ACTIF program supported by Sport et Loisir de l’Île de Montréal (SLIM).
Le Moulin à vent Productions has therefore been awarded a grant for the creation of the project and its implementation, which will take place next spring in the Rivière-des-Prairies/Point-aux-Trembles borough.
Parc actif is a program propelled by SLIM and financially supported by the Ministère de l’Éducation et de l’Enseignement supérieur and Kino Québec, whose mission is to encourage the creation of outdoor activity centres.
The objectives of Parc Actif are as follows:
- To create sustainable active outdoor activity centres in local Montréal parks;
- Promote the establishment of centres in underprivileged areas and ensure universal accessibility;
- To increase the appeal of physical activities in the natural environment for young people;
- Create a sustainable and reproducible model of practice centres.
