RISE (Roma Inclusion through Sport in Europe) was a joint initiative of European sport and civil society organizations to tackle discrimination, social exclusion and marginalization of Roma youngsters through exchanging good practices, capacity building activities and the development of sport-based educational activities. The key objective of the project was to promote social inclusion, equal opportunities and awareness of the disadvantaged situation of the Roma minority through sport-based education activities.

The transnational project meeting organized by Champions Factory was a 4-day long training course to up-skill sport coaches, trainers, youth and social workers with the educational methodology to deliver quality sport-based interventions addressing the needs of disadvantaged young people living in segregated areas. The training course was based on the introduction of the tangible outcomes of the RISE project, especially the educational manual will serve as the main input for the organized activities. The training was based on non-formal education building on the personal contributions of participants in the form of interactive workshops and presentations, roundtable
discussions and debates.
