ABOUT THE PROJECT

 

The “Focus on Sport for Environmental Sustainability” project is designed to educate and empower young people by highlighting the crucial role sports can play in promoting environmental sustainability. This initiative aims to broaden the understanding of critical environmental issues among participants, specifically focusing on climate change, global warming, and the intricacies of the EU Green Deal. By doing so, it seeks to elevate awareness about the environmental challenges we face globally.

The project is committed to equipping participants with practical skills and tools. It focuses on enabling young individuals to develop and effectively implement campaigns and initiatives that advocate for environmental sustainability in the context of sports. This not only includes imparting knowledge but also fostering the creativity and confidence necessary to drive change through innovative and impactful sustainability initiatives in their communities.

PROJECT OBJECTIVES

  • To enable participants to develop individual action plans that they can implement in their home countries post-project, focusing on the intersection of sports, environmental sustainability, and climate action.
  • To create a network of young people from different countries who are committed to environmental sustainability, facilitating ongoing collaboration and exchange of best practices even after the project’s conclusion.
  • To develop new tools, such as digital content, campaigns, or educational programs, that can be used to promote awareness of environmental sustainability through sports in the participants’ local communities.
