Selected participants


The project is a small collaborative partnership in the field of sport whose goal is to prevent radicalisation of young people encouraging social inclusion and equal opportunities in sport.

The project partners will achieve this objective by creating a network of 16 ambassadors that will reach young people in events at the local level using the Education Through Sport (ETS) methodology. The ambassadors will constitute a transnational network for sport education against radicalisation strengthening the links between project partners and external stakeholders.
A comprehensive research will provide the European state-of-the-art about current practices to prevent radicalisation in sport and through sport education. Afterwards, the ambassadors will realise a set of awareness-raising actions online and sport events.

Project objectives: 

  • Prevention of and fight against violence and intolerance
  • Social inclusion in and through sport
