EU Youth through sustainable, inclusive and democratic SPORT.

General objective of the project:

The general objective of the action is to promote interest and engagement on European youth goals and future EU youth policies among less active youth and youth at risk of marginalization and discrimination by promoting inclusive and sustainable grassroots sports activities.

Specific objectives of the project:

  • Create a network to improve the connection and involvement of less active young people in Europe around European values and EU objectives for youth through sport;
  • Strengthen the capacities of coaches and athletes by increasing the engagement on EU issues among their peers, with special attention to children with fewer opportunities, through training and international exchange;
  • Promote inclusive and sustainable sport events and activities to increase active engagement and participation of young people in EU affairs;
  • Promote networking for continuous and mutual cooperation between youth organisations and sport organisations working with young people across Europe to improve their impact on EU policies and involvement in EU affairs.

  • Training and knowledge of EU youth objectives among sports coaches, athletes and activists and mapping of good practices;
  • International mobility for young athletes in Athens and young coaches in Amsterdam;
  • Implementation of sport events and activities in national context;
