Kick off Event - Long Term Activity on social change through sport

Conference – Symposium - Forum

12-16 June 2023 | Nouvelle-Aquitaine (South West), France

YouSports-Kick Off Event - the new Strategic National Agencies Cooperation ----- Looking at how youth work can use sport to support value-based learning in communities and reach different audiences to get involved in international projects.

Sports projects have the potential to change lives, communities and society. Through non-formal education, sport can be used as a tool for competence development - including physical skills and soft skills. Sports leaders and coaches should be upskilled to include more and different learning in their projects. There is a need for the recognition of the impact and change that non-formal learning can have on people through sports projects. Using sport as a method, through value-based and experiential learning, there is huge potential for social change. Many are doing this already.

At the conference, practices will be explored, gathered and shared between social sports organisations that have experience and expertise in social sports with young people, to be multiplied and built on further by others.
