Sport in the Environment of National Minorities
Between Integration, Assimilation and Linguistic Diversity
The aim of the project is to create the collaborative partnerships between sports clubs and organizations, which are active in the social environment of different national and ethnic minorities. Networking has its origin in several transnational project meetings (meeting of each partner organized) in order to promote sport and health.
Participants will not only be engaged in the realization of the project people, but also people who work in those sports clubs that are active in the field of national minorities in other European countries. Each meeting will last 3 days and there are about 12 people attend.
To strengthen the cooperation, an Internet contact platform will be develop. The target group of this web-side will be all national and ethnic minorities from all Europe.
As a summary of the project, we are planning an international athletic meeting for children. During the event, many teams from different national minorities can meet, kids will play sports, and trainers and staff will join and exchange experiences.
