The third meeting of the co-funded Erasmus + project “Sport For Everyone” took place in Rome (Italy) from March the 21st to the 23th. After the previous seminar “Sport and Companies” in Paris, the project team, composed of the representatives of 5 European NOCs (France, Italy, Lithuania, Portugal, F.Y.R. Macedonia) and the Think tank Sport and Citizenship, met this time to exchange about “Sport and Education”.
These two-day Seminar enabled the project team to keep on identifying good practices linked to this specific topic of the European Week of Sport (EWoS). The seminar hinged on academic and experience-based presentations. After an overview of the values of sport given by Rose-Marie Repond, Professor at the University of Lausanne, experts shared their experience in education. The Inclusive National Programme developed by the British Youth Sport Trust and the School Sport Day implemented by the French School Sport Federation (UNSS) were presented as well as the education programmes of the partners NOCs. Additionally, a guided tour offered the participants the opportunity to discover some emblematic sporting venues, such as Foro Italico, the Olympic Stadium and the Stadio dei Marmi. The good practices identified will be at the end of 2016 listed in a Handbook for the organisation of the EWoS.
The project team will pursue its work with the next Seminar focusing on the “Success factors for the organisation of the EWoS”. It will take place at the beginning of June in Brussels. Workshops and exchanges with major stakeholders like the Sport Intergroup of the EU Parliament and the European Olympic Committees will be organised.
