This project addresses the topic “Encourage social inclusion through sport”. Although cultural diversity is not a new phenomenon, in the last decades it became particularly intense in Europe. As experts in education, we strongly believe that cultural differences, if managed with the right instruments, can be a great resource; and that living in an inclusive environment can help kids to develop mental flexibility and open-mindness, which will be useful for their future as active European citizens.
- Giving to educators, teachers, and social workers involved in the education of kids instruments and tools to use sports as a vehicle to promote inclusion in their intercultural learning environment.
- Giving to sport coaches instruments and tools to make the sport practice more inclusive for immigrate kids belonging to different cultures.
- Contributing in sharing the culture of sport as in instrument for education and social inclusion, building a bridge between sport and social sector.
