YouMind

January 2024 - June 2025

YouMind project partners are committed to healthy lifestyles and well-being in the sports community, recognising the importance of mental health for young athletes. It is well known that the sports environment can be a factor in the development of mental health struggles for some young athletes. Partners aim to prevent this through three main project objectives: 

  1. Raising awareness about the importance of mental health in sports (through surveys, workshops and social media campaign);
  2. Developing different strategies to prevent mental health issues for young athletes;
  3. Developing a guideline in the form of a digital leaflet and promotional video on the athlete’s experiences.

Social Inclusion

Allstars Project
Partner

Allstars

February 2024 - December 2025

The project’s goal is to identify and analyse successful local sport policies for enhanced sport participation. This means identifying projects and programs at the local level particularly oriented towards enhanced integration and participation of usually less organised, marginalised segments of society into the practice and the governance of sports. The project intends to improve participation in sports for those segments of society that are usually underrepresented or excluded. The project partners believe that it is here, at local level, that new and innovative approaches can be developed and it is the very focus of participation in a tangible sense. By combining good practice, institutional change and the analysis of local networks, the project seeks to highlight new and successful ways in process and content of local sport politics and governance.

Best Inclusion

June 2022 - June 2025

The BeST inclusion project aims to contribute to the work for greater inclusion within the sport sector by making practical recommendations to sport employers regarding the employment of women, young people and people with disabilities. Through policy propositions and analysis of good practices in EU countries the partners aim in achieving a more inclusive workforce. The project produced three different studies about barriers to employment of women, young people and people with disabilities within the sport sector which serve for creating a single guide where good practices on these topics will be included. Thus, the different objectives of the project are to identify the reasons why the employment of young people, women and people with disabilities are either constrained or encouraged at national level, and then to use the results of this research to come up with general recommendations at European level.

Human Rights Education Through Sport Programme
Coordinator

Human Rights Education through Sport

2022

The main idea of the Human Rights Education through Sport programme is to support youth and sport organisations as well as sport and youth workers in developing competences to act as a multiplier for human rights and human rights education through sports in their realities. More than 100 young leaders working within and/or with the youth & sport sector from more than 30 countries were introduced to a theoretical context around Sports’ contribution to promote, ensure and advocate for Human Rights.

Move4nature Project
Partner

Move4Nature

June 2022 - November 2023

Say yes to green habits in sport! The main objective of the project is to combine physical activity with “concrete” climate action. The project will use outdoor sports (particularly hiking) as a tool to teach youth, and adults, about the importance of the environmental protection and climate action. Through hiking, the project will also facilitate inclusion and intergenerational exchange.

Sport diplomacy

Youth In Action
Coordinator

Youth in Action

2024

Youth participation in shaping sport organisations is vital for democratic societies. While young people actively engage in sports, they lack meaningful roles in decision-making within these organisations. Addressing this disparity is crucial for a more inclusive and diverse sports community.
