SPORT PLUS II - LOOKING UP NEW GOALS
Start date: Jan 5, 2015,
End date: Sep 4, 2015
SPLUS brings together 34 people from 9 European countries: they will exchange ideas, opinions and personal
experience about their involvement in the society they live in. The different activities proposed will promote the
reflection about the role of youth workers as part of present and future Europe. The TC will raise awareness about the
necessity of further developing an Europe people-centred thus promoting active citizenship. The session dedicated to
2014 EU elections will allow promoting the reflection about young people's participation in EU democratic life
(starting from the analyse of the rate of voting of participants) and about the meaning of European citizenship.
*The project arises from the idea to provide those working in the field of youth with innovative and different tools to
contribute tackling issues such as social exclusion and discrimination in their daily work, combating racism and any
kind of behaviours leading to exclusion. Sport is thus analyzed as tool for the development of social and personal skills
that participants can use working especially with disadvantaged youth.
*The project is linked to the objectives laid down in the Europe 2020 strategy in terms of sustainable growth,
reinforcing social inclusion and advancing people’s Europe. In fact, the TC will provide participants with skills and
knowledge to promote the health-enhancing, social and educational functions of sport. It promotes networking and
exchange of experiences and good practice between youth organizations enabling participants to learn each other,
exploiting the use of sport as tool for inclusion.
*SPLUS will debate founding principle of the EU such the respect for human rights fighting any kind of behaviours
leading to exclusion and discrimination. Using sport as educational tool means in fact works to set up actions
promoting the development of an inclusive European society according to the funding principles of EU Treaties.
