We aim to create contact between different social groups to foster social inclusion, make young people understand how minority discrimination works and how to counteract this.
HOW WE TAKE THE ROAD?
The aim of this project is to use sports as a tool to empower the young, educate them on human rights and teach them the essence of tolerance and collaboration. The steps to achieve our goals is to identify the key areas & sources of minority discrimination in every partner country; create means to encourage social inclusion through grassroots sports; promote the idea that everyone regardless of their ethnicity, religion, gender, and sexual orientation can play and, eventually, live together.
Thus, the project’s deliverables are:
Developing an in-depth research to identify the challenges faced by minorities and how sports can tackle these.
An international video contest where youngsters across the EU can participate and win a GoPro Hero7 Silver camera by creating videos about inspiring people, who have empowered marginalized communities through sports.
The refugee crisis in Europe is usually discussed in numbers – five million Syrians fleeing their country, 162,000 asylum applications to Sweden in 2015, an 82% drop one year later when Swedish parliament voted to toughen immigration laws.
