Selected participants

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.

GETS training course

GETS training took a place in Liptovský Mikuláš from 15th of Februaty until 19th of February. In a sporting spirit, we completed several workshops focused on how sport events harm the enviroment, what we can do differently and what change can be done in grasroots level. The training participants had the opportunity to view prepared e-module. Their comments and feedback as future users were very beneficial. In addition to education, we also managed to go skiing, hiking and taking bath in a hot spring.







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.
