Aims & objectives

EurAsian Social ActiveNation (EUASAN) aims to foster trans-continental cooperation in community development (CD) between countries and organizations of Europe (Greece, Spain, Hungary) and Asia (India, Vietnam). EUASAN comprises of 5 interrelated events (1 Kick off meeting, 2 Training Courses, 1 local implementation in home countries and 1 Final Evaluation meeting) lasting a total 2 years. The overall aim of this KA2 Capacity Building project was to foster development of communities (marginalised, school, rural area, volunteering and young people with fewer opportunities) by using two interrelated methods a) non-formal education (NFE) for self-development and leadership skills enhancement b) education through sport (ETS).
ETS methodology was chosen as it consists of the integration and implementation of sport elements to be used for educational purpose to address social issues, develop social competences and provoke a lasting social transformation. EUASAN project developed communities on two level: 1) European and Asian youth leaders/workers to build intercultural relations and understanding between these 2 regions 2) within the organizations and their field of work. Participants gained necessary skills and became trainers/facilitators involving communities to turn them into active and happy citizens by creating platforms/activities for inclusion.
