“Game Changers: Fostering Active Citizenship among Youth through Sports” is a pioneering European program designed to reverse the trend of waning youth participation in civic life by leveraging sports as a catalyst for active citizenship.
This initiative underscores the critical importance of three areas: bolstering the skills of youth workers, crafting sports-centered civic engagement initiatives, and fostering connections with local communities. Its aims are multifaceted, including bridging the gap between sports and civic involvement, formulating strategies to enhance engagement, empowering youth facilitators, devising sports-related activities that mirror the diversity of participating countries, impacting local communities positively, and establishing a supportive network of youth workers with shared visions.

Through achieving these goals, the initiative aspires to reshape the attitudes and behaviors of young individuals, motivating them to make meaningful contributions to their communities. Additionally, this initiative represents a vital contribution to the broader European endeavor to boost youth involvement in the 2024 European elections, further solidifying its commitment to fostering a more engaged and participatory society.

Main objectives of the project:

● Bridging Sports and Civic Engagement: Explore the connection between sports and active citizenship, focusing on unique national challenges and opportunities.
● Designing Engagement Strategies: Collaborate on creating sports-based strategies to enhance civic participation, serving as models for community initiatives.
● Empowering Youth Leaders: Equip youth leaders with tools and skills for engaging young people in civic activities through sports.
● Creating Sports-Centric Activities: Develop nine unique sports-related activities, each reflecting the cultural context of a partner country, to promote active citizenship.
● Community Engagement: Implement these activities in local schools to directly engage communities and demonstrate their impact on fostering active citizenship.
