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.

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.

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.
