Green Education Through Sports (GETS) is a 18 months Erasmus+ Cooperation partnership project
with the aim to develop, test and implement an innovative online educational tool allowing grassroots
sport and environmental organisations to exchange knowledge in order to deliver eco-friendly sport
events benefiting as wide a range of target groups as possible. GETS focuses on the ever growing
needs of the grassroots sport movement to implement more sustainable, environmentally-friendly,
volunteer-based and widely accessible sport events that on one hand raise awareness on the
importance of environmental protection and on the other hand encourage participation in health
enhancing physical activity.

The key objectives of GETS:

● to increase the capacities of the grassroot sport organisations and civil/green NGOs through
exchanging working practices to offer eco-friendly and accessible sport events to a wide range of target
audiences;
● to enable partner organisations to develop and test an online educational tool (GETS e-module)
promoting greener, widely accessible and volunteer-based sport events;
● to improve knowledge and skills of the members, volunteers of sport and civil organisations about the
concept of eco-sports through transnational work and locally implemented sport activities;
● to empower sport organisations’ staff members and volunteers to raise awareness on the importance
of environmental friendly behaviours and include older generations in green sports events and
campaigns;
