European TSG Platform

TRADITIONAL SPORTS AND GAMES (TSG)
ARE PART OF EUROPE’S INTANGIBLE HERITAGE
AND A SYMBOL OF BOTH ITS CULTURAL
DIVERSITY AND COMMON CULTURAL
BACKGROUND.

European TSG

 

TSG are an effective vehicle to encourage participation in Sport for All and physical activity, and they convey values of solidarity, diversity, inclusiveness, cultural awareness and peace. Unfortunately, no common understanding of the situation of TSG in Europe exists, let alone a coordinated approach to the promotion and provision of TSG opportunities.

In direct response to this need, the European TSG Platform project, co-funded by the Erasmus + Programme of the European Union, will create a central resource hub encompassing the three complimentary elements of research, policy and practice, enabling the future development of a coordinated approach to the preservation and promotion of European TSG.

European TSG

 

Timeline – 1st to 31st December 2017

Vision – A united Europe eternally rich in diverse TSG.

  • Strengthen the sense of ‘pride in being European’ in citizens across Europe.

 

ACTION PLAN SUMMARY:

  • 1. Conduct an analysis of the current situation of TSG in Europe and publish an overview focussing on three key elements – policy, research and practice
  • 2. Draw conclusions, identify key priorities and formulate recommendations for the safeguarding and promotion of European TSG
  • 3. Define the ETSGP’s scope of work, vision, mission, objectives, structure, strategy, activities and budget requirements
  • 4. Establish the ETSGP and broadly disseminate project results
