  • Duration: 30 months (from 1st January 2017 to 30th June 2019
  • Partnership: 14 partners
  • EU programme: Erasmus + Sport Chapter - Collaborative Partnership - Call 2016
  • Scope: Sport movement

Co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union and supported by the European Lotteries Association (EL), ASPIRE could serve as a pioneer in long-term perspective, using the added value of sport in offering a solution for inclusion during and after the settlement of refugees.

 

ASPIRE has the main aim to offer suitable participation opportunities for refugees in and through sport, physical activity and play. This aim can be best achieved by the development and implementation of a training module that can support people involved in sport to adapt their existing coaching activities to the specific context of the refugees.

The training module will enhance the skills and competences of facilitators in the area of psychosocial support and intercultural learning, and also compile innovative approaches to make sports organisations more open, accessible and inclusive.

This will be reached through the following specific objectives:

  • Increasing the knowledge and evidence-base of working with vulnerable people, especially refugees, the organisational challenges and needs, and identifying good practice examples
  • Supporting sport organisations to offer suitable participation opportunities for refugees with the help of innovative educational approaches
  • Enhancing skills and competences of facilitators especially in the area of psychosocial support and intercultural sensitiveness
  • Enhancing intercultural dialogue between refugees and host communities
  • Raising awareness of the added value of sport in promoting the social inclusion of refugees.

 

Main expected outcomes:

  • An academic  research on the needs and challenges of refugees and sport organisations.
  • A training module targeting people involved in sport (e.g. coaches, project leaders, volunteers), but potentially also PE teachers, as well as social and aid workers and refugees with a sporting background.
  • 9 national training sessions to test the training (Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Finland, Germany, Greece, Serbia, Spain, and Sweden)
