POINTS project educational programme



POINTS project educational programme

As part of the POINTS project, “Single Points of Contact for Sports Integrity”, supported under Erasmus+ and coordinated by the EOC EU Office, the third educational seminar on the topic of integrity in sport was delivered in Lisbon from 21 to 23 of May 2019.

The overall goal of the project is to provide support to sport organisations to safeguard the integrity of their sport(s) and to strengthen their governance (www.points-project.com).  

This third seminar gathered 25 participants responsible for sports integrity from 16 different sport organisations and was designed to share information and tools, to clarify responsibilities and expectations, and overall to enhance the skills and competences of the participants acting as single point of contact (SPOCs).

The three days were organised through a mix of plenary and working group sessions focusing on the importance of cooperation between the SPOCs and international stakeholders, on the potential creation of a European network of SPOCs, and on the skills needed to perform as a SPOC. Some high-level speakers and guests presented a sample of good practice examples.

Moreover, a group simulation with three concrete cases dealing with the topic of harassment and abuses were arranged to enable participants to exchange, debate and use the specific tools presented during the seminar.

The final part of the seminar was dedicated to a live assessment of the overall educational programme and this was coordinated by Aurélien Favre from the European Observatoire of Sport and Employment. The aim was to collate comments from the participants about the three educational seminars and to underline the strengths and areas of improvement for future training in the are of sports integrity.

The POINTS project is ongoing with the organisation of 14 national workshops in the upcoming months before a final conference that will take place in Brussels at the end of 2020.
