The Project “MOVE – MOVe togEther” that was submitted under the call of Erasmus + programme – sport Actions Small Collaborative Partnerships will have duration of 24 months and intends to transfer to children and adolescents, and their educators, coaches and instructors, a full awareness about the theme of socio-cultural integration and respect of other people through sport, removing prejudices and feelings of fear, or in extreme cases of hate, which can potentially turn into episodes of violence, racism, intolerance and bullying.
“MOVE” also intends to stimulate in the young people a critical reflection on, the one hand, the psycho-physical risks related to a sedentary lifestyle and to an excessive use of videogames, smartphones, etc. and. on the other, the benefits related to the practice of physical activity, in particular the activity carried out in contact with nature. The Project foresees the sharing of Good Practices experimented by the partners involved, connected to the key theme of the project, and a peer reflection focused on the risks (psycho-physical) connected to the technological isolation and the sedentary life of young people.
Each partner will share methodologies, practices, and activities experimented that use sport as a tool for social integration / inclusion, according to a logic of mutual sharing and learning. The Applicant (A.S.D. Castelbuonese), will share the best practice experimented during START Project, transferring it to a new target group: children and adolescents (from elementary / middle schools or part of sports organizations, youth aggregation centres or local community) and their instructors, coaches, educators. The “Integration through Sport” methodology and the contents of the Handbook “START Project Transnational Training” will be transferred and shared within the new partnership as a valid tool to promote integration and socio-cultural inclusion and to fight and prevent, among young people, the phenomena or attitudes of intolerance, discrimination, violence, racism and bullying towards the different people (migrant, people with disability, ethnic groups, etc.). The other Partners will bring other examples of activities, methodologies and best practices tested in this topic. In this way the Project “MOVE” will contribute to strengthening the vision of sport as a tool for integration, social inclusion and the promotion of equal opportunities.
