Achieve, Collect & Give Back
"Achieve, collect and give back" is a civic movement that begins in each one of us, with a view to create awareness and draw attention to our role and responsibility on personal development/ civic education and sports for children and young people. It aims to raise funds for the Judo Blocks (quarterly program integrated in Primary Schools), providing sports training and civic awareness for youth at risk.
It is a movement inspired by social values promoted by the School of Judo Nuno Delgado -resilience, self-knowledge and solidarity:
- Jiko No Kansei (Search for physical and mental perfection) Achieve - Resilience
- Seiryoku Zenyo (Use of physical and mental energy for maximum effect) Collect - Self-knowledge
- Jita Kyoei (Prosperity and Mutual benefit for all) Give Back – Solidarity
The movement "Achieve, Collect & Give Back" is represented by a rainbow judo belt, the "rainbow belt", which symbolizes hope, unity of opposites, a union of peoples and social integration, a championed concept advocated by Nelson Mandela, the ambassador for the social inclusion concept.
The World Largest Judo Class to be held during the Lisbon World Cup on June 1th, 2011 at Terreiro do Paço is the most visible initiative of this movement, consisting in a massive presentation, rhythmic and music where everyone can participate and thus promote a healthy practice of an activity that also has educational nature. It is an event with European Judo Union approval, is part of its sporting calendar, as assumed strategic event of the Commission for Social Integration of the European Judo Union. It is also a joint event for the City Festival program in Lisbon.
Towards to the World Largest Judo Class, there are several regional and international events scheduled from March to May 2011. Regional events, for all the family, promote and expand the movement through a innovating model Judo class, massive presentation to be held during the week with visits and direct invitations in schools, culminating with the regional event itself on the following Saturday, open to the community. They are replicas of the World Largest Judo Class, undertaken by the country, mobilizing and attracting participants and funds.
