Sport as an Equal Playground


 Sport as an Equal Playground

In the spring of 2021, a new international project was launched – the project’s main focus is on inclusion, social accessibility, and equality in sports activities.

We act as project partners and bring e.g. the expertise and experience in the field of inclusion, equality, and leisure activities. The aim of the project is to share and utilize the good practices of the partners, compile the good practices into a guide, and train members of organizations and volunteers. Outputs and materials will be distributed to sports and free-time activities providers and other networks, as well as we will record a podcast series during the project.

The project is supported by Erasmus + Sport program.
