Guidelines for Actions, Events, Methods, Involving Refugees & Local Youth into Sports
- Year of publishing: 2016
To promote cooperation between refugees and locals, a 1-year project “Sports Together” has been initiated. The main idea of the project was to create a sustainable programme for refugee integration through sports and accelerate their integration process in Lithuania. At the same time, it helped to lower existing fears and stereotypes towards refugees.
The methodology is a broader term that includes not only one exercise or activity, but, in general, the ways in which you promote refugee integration through sports. This manual includes 10 types of sporting activities that address a specific goal that trainers could wish to achieve.
