Project description:

The youth exchange “Equality in Sports”‘ main topic is sport as a method and a way of overcoming inequalities in different areas – such as integration of minorities.

The youth exchange Equality in Sports aims to promote initiatives for the young European generations providing a set of best practices and usable practical instruments to work with young people through methods based on equality sport.

The practice of sports activities can play a major role in human development, not only on a physical level but on a cognitive level as well. Sports practice has been associated with the positive development of several soft-skills (e.g. communication, stress). Some of them are realated to the interpersonal skills that can be acquired through the practice of team sports. The soft-skills acquired through sports practice can be applied in day-to-day life activities, and in the long term assist in a more positive life and improved well-being.
