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.


Our project

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.

Our project

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.

Our project

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.


Niemieckie Towarzystwo Oświatowe (German Educational Society), is an association active in the community of Germans living in Poland in the Upper Silesia region. This organization is specializing in educational opportunities, school projects and sport involvement. It implements projects that combines education and physical activity. It also works for multiculturalism and the consistent cooperation of all residents of Silesia region.

The result of the project will be a list of good practices carried out either by the partners themselves and also all around the world, intended to promote social inclusion, linguistic diversity, ethnic identity and solving cross-border threats for the integrity of sport (violence, racism, hate-speech).
