EWOS ABILITY LINK*KIT – Using EWOS 2015 to stimulate Regular Participation in Sport and HEPA for and with People with a Disability
Start date: May 1, 2015,
End date: Oct 31, 2016
The majority of Europeans with a disability do not yet have equal opportunities to participate in sports or HEPA. The EWOS ABILITY LINK*KIT Project will tackle this need and create a lasting trans-national and trans-sectoral European partnership that holds the expertise to link national disability sport structures and local stakeholders, in order to raise awareness and sustainably increase day-to-day participation in disability sports and HEPA for people with a disability. The project will be undertaken in the light of the EWOS 2015 and it will be key to sustainably connect the disability sport sector to this new flagship event for sports promotion. The project will focus on 3 main activities: (1) The identification and testing of good practices to organise awareness-raising events for sports and HEPA for and with people with a disability, together with the identification and elaboration of measures on how to turn such ‘one-off activities’ into higher day-to-day participation through collaboration with local stakeholders. (2) A local EWOS Event will be held in the City of Eger to showcase the disability sports sector in the light of the EWOS 2015 principles, and to test the applicability of good practices identified through the project. (3) The impact of the practices identified and applied through the project will be monitored and the learning will be deduced into a practical Toolkit to learn from. This will be followed by a European Workshop to spread the practices, and to train relevant disability sport stakeholders towards the implementation of more events during the EWOS 2016 and beyond. The vision is that – step by step – the EWOS ABILITY LINK*KIT will help national and local disability sport stakeholders to contribute to future EWOS events and that these local events will also create sustainable higher day-to-day participation in sports and health enhancing physical activity for and with people with a disability.
