European Network for promotion of women’s sport / Women&Sports
Start date: Jan 1, 2016, End date: Jan 31, 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The overall objective of this project is to establish a European Network for promotion of women's sport, with particular attention to women in risk of social exclusion (e.g. immigrants and disabled) and of racial discrimination.Based on gender inequality and social discrimination in sport, the current project will consist in three main initiatives:- An European event - the European Women & Sports Day: it will be an annual European initiative for raising awareness about the importance of women in sports, that will involve several European Organizations. The event aims first to sensitize the society for discrimination of women in sport, but it envisages also the engagement of women in sport for example through celebrating success of women and learning from success cases (e.g. by hearing testimonials from elite sport women – the champions!), with demonstrations of diverse modalities and by changing experiences and knowledge. More generally, the event aims to achieve a fairer basis on sport that will benefit the future generations of women in Europe. The first edition of this perennial event will take place in Paris, in Spring 2016, and will also serve as the launch of a web platform;- Diverse awareness initiatives: the accomplishment of specific initiatives (beyond the European Women and Sports Day) to give increase visibility to women’s sport, such as seminars, workshops and training actions;- A web platform: The European Women & Sports Day is an initiative integrated on a global project that the FAM is carrying out: the implementation of a European women & sports web platform.. Succinctly, the platform will consist on a hub for organizations (Clubs, Federations, Associations, etc.) and women in general, that will concentrate information about projects and activities, stimulate sharing knowledge, building good practices database, broadcasting sports and promoting crowd funding.
