Sport for Intercultural Dialogue

Sport for Intercultural Dialogue

 Sport is a tool to promote integration and fight discrimination and racism. The primary aim of the Sport ID project is to create awareness-raising activities for amateur athletes, coaches, trainers, and educators who work in the fields of sports connected with solidarity and social inclusion, sharing good practices and creating Open Educational Resources on how sports can support social inclusion. Sport ID aims to make connections between migrants and asylum seekers and local community through sports. All team sports allow refugees and asylum seekers to establish a contact with their local environment and to meet local associations and groups of which they usually don’t feel a part. The integration that arises during amateur sports events is a stimulus towards active citizenship in matters concerned with immigration, security, and the benefits of sports.
