Kick-off meeting: Multisport Culture for Youth Empowerment

Kick-off meeting: Multisport Culture for Youth Empowerment

This week, L’Orma hosted the first transnational meeting of ‘Multisport Culture for Youth Empowerment’, an Erasmus+ project connecting 4 partner countries: Italy, Spain, Czech Republic and Romania.

For this adventure we have the honor to collaborate with three partner NGOs:

Hodina H (Check Republic) – ACD La Hoya (Spain) – Clubul Sportiv Experienta Multisport (Romania)

The overall objective of the project is to promote a multisport approach to youth physical literacy, based on the promotion of a precise cultural matrix articulated around 3 key concepts: Physical Literacy, Long Term Athlete Development, Sport for life.

Objective of the project are:

  • To develop new concrete opportunities based on multisport approach for children aged between 6 and 12 years old, open to both types of future sport participation: as simple recreational enjoyment and as eventual competitive career.
  • To design a model of multisport practices that unifies the richness of territorial sports offer and the educational concerns for balanced growth & empowerment of children based on improved soft skills.
  • To enhance the skills of the key operators through sharing experiences and good practices between partners about this specific topic.
  • To spread the culture of multisport & multidisciplinarity in sports in the local communities by increasing knowledge and awareness about the benefits of this developmental approach, towards all the stakeholders (parents, instructors, clubs, municipalities).

The meeting was hosted in our office in Milan.

Every organization introduced itself and its area of expertise; then, after a discussion about  objectives and concrete actions of the project, we also set up the division of responsibilities and planned dates of next meetings.

Overall, these two days allowed us to discuss the course of the project and to get to know each other better, especially during lunch where participants could enjoy typical Italian food and Milan tour in the evening. We’re ready to start this adventure together!
