This project aims to contribute to the realization of the Union’s objectives in terms of promoting sports and healthy lifestyles among its citizens and especially younger generations. In particular, this project stays in line with Erasmus+ priority to provide opportunities for cooperation and transfer of knowledge in different areas relating to sport and physical activity and promote and boost social inclusion throughout the sport. Despite the European policies in the field of sport and healthy lifestyle education, even if the societal role of sport is not anymore underestimated nowadays, it was observed, sport is not yet used on a structural level as a tool for social inclusion in the partner countries involved in this project.
Thus, the project overall objective is to foster social inclusion of youth with fewer opportunities (e.g. migrants, youth with minority ethnic background) through their engagement into sport and raise awareness on the key role of sport in both healthy lifestyle education and empower inclusion among the young people from Bulgaria, Lithuania, Italy and Romania.
- To include people from all age groups and backgrounds in exercising sport activities.
- To contribute to realization of the EU’s objectives in terms of promoting sports and healthy lifestyles among its citizens.
- To foster social inclusion of youth with fewer opportunities (e.g. migrants, minority background youth) among the youngsters.
This project will include people of different age groups and backgrounds: project coordinators in charge of all local and international events, sports leaders, representatives of local authorities/municipalities, people who are interested in healthy lifestyle and motivated to make a change.
