Slovakia and around Europe
The main aim of the project “Winter Sport is Coming” was to promote winter sports as physical activity and as an educational tool to support social inclusion, intercultural dialogue, and European citizenship among young people from different backgrounds by developing and implementing Winter Sports Camps. From a long-term perspective, the project aims to increase the participation of young people in Winter Sports.
There were several activities and meetings during the project duration:
• kick-off meeting in Bratislava, Slovakia (April 2019)
• research on existing national and European Winter Sports good practices (May-August 2019)
• preparation of Winter Sports Camps (September – November 2019)
• mid-term meeting in Italy (November 2019)
• Winter Sports Camp in each country (January – March 2020, February – April 2021)
• preparation of publication (February – June 2021)
• final meeting in Sofia, Bulgaria (June 2021)
Main activities of the project were Winter Sport Camps. We created and organized various models of Winter Sports Camp in 4 countries for different target groups. Camps include elements of non-formal education methods and can be implemented by other sports organizations in the future.
The project was developed by the partnership of organisations from Slovakia, Italy, Bulgaria and Croatia.
