Aims & objectives

This training activity aimed to bring disabled and fewer opportunity participants together using the theme of sport for inclusion. The training introduced participants to practical participation in sport and for youth sport workers to get ideas how this could be used as a tool for inclusion. Participants who joined Inclusion through Sport on the whole had inclusion as a focus of the group and wanted to introduce sport as a tool to introduce their target group to international mobility opportunities.

Target group & international/intercultural composition of the group & team

The team included Slovenian, German and B&H staff and the training brought together participants from Slovenia, Germany, UK, Germany, FYRM, and Italy.

Training methods used & main activities

Interactive and participative methods. Sessions included for example participants designing a sport for inclusion in mixed ability/country teams. Trying out different sports and adapting them for use with enable and also disabled participants. Introducing sports from participants own countries and teaching the rules of play, contact making and finally an overview of the Youth in Action programmes.

Outcomes of the activity

The final day of this workshop was spent with participants setting up their own contact and future planning groups. Three projects have been suggested as a result of the training and we will do a follow up within 12 months after the activity ended in order to discover what has been achieved.
