SOAP 2013 - Sports, Outdoor Activities, Participation

Training Course

21-27 April 2013 | Laugar, Sælingsdal, Iceland

In the SOAP training, we will explore the power of sports and outdoor activities, the possibilities that it brings to attract young people and to use it as an educational tool.
Nelson Mandela said: “It (sports) has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand.” Sports and outdoor activities are very attractive activities for many young people. It is fun to do, brings you together with friends and is healthy for your body. Sport is not only about winning of competition. Sport can bring people together and help individuals to learn. In the SOAP training, we will explore the power of sports and outdoor activities, the possibilities that it brings to attract young people and to use it as an educational tool. We will use the extraordinary setting and landscape of Iceland. In the training there will be time to do sport, talk about sport, learn about sport and its effects on participation, inclusion and other societal issues. Aims: - Form new networks: to bring sport organisations from European countries together and to increase co-operation with experienced youth organisations - Make use of the power of sport: to use sport as an educational tool in international youth projects - In- and Outdoor: to make use of the environment and outdoor activities Objectives: - to encourage new co-operations in Europe in the Youth in Action programme - to address new target groups - looking forward to the new European programmes - To encourage creative and sportive methodology in non-formal learning - To live a healthy week and have fun
