Our new project EDUSPORT is starting now!
The kick-off meeting went well, and we cannot wait for the implementation process!
During the meeting, we talked about how to implement Education Through Sports as a methodology in youth education and work in Europe. The European Union has recognised sport as an essential element in human beings’ lives, both for personal and professional development and the prevention of future health-related conditions.
YEU will coordinate the project, which will be developed with three partners: United Societies of Balkans (USB) based in Greece; Armenian Progressive Youth (APY) based in Armenia; MOJU – Associação Movimento Juvenil em Olhão based in Portugal; and Sailing Club Horn Kraków based in Poland, a sports club specialised in the use of sport for education to tackle social exclusion. We have already planned to organise some offline activities if the COVID measures lighten up in the near future…
The 24-months project will use a new methodology: Education through Sports, where sports become tools to achieve educational goals. One of the main outcomes of the project will be the creation of a Manual on Sports Education. It will be the departure point to implement this methodology in new future projects.
We are excited about this adventure! We will keep you updated with fresh news about the on-going project!
