TAFISA is excited to announce that its project “International and European Sport Organisations Activate Citizens – INTERACT” selected by the European Commission and co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union started its course on 1 January 2021 and will run until December 2022.
The project aims to gather International and European Sport Organisations (IESOs) and develop a new delivery system that places participation in Sport for All and physical activity at its core. It will reflect on how to adapt sports, their rules, settings, delivery, etc. to the needs of target groups and grassroots sport participation, and on how IESOs can better contribute to the objectives of key European and International policy papers, including, but not limited to, the WHO Global Action Plan for Physical Activity, UNESCO Kazan Action Plan, UN Sustainable Development Goals, EU Council Recommendation on HEPA, and EU Physical Activity Guidelines.
While an informal meeting took place on 17 December last year, the project will hold its initial kick-off meetings on 18-19 February, and will be led in cooperation with the following partners:
A set of resources will be developed to empower and support IESOs and their respective National Federations to adopt new strategies to promote Sport for All and physical activity participation, including the following:
A next step will be the organisation of a consultation workshop with selected IESOs in April 2021.
The project seeks to create new opportunities for citizens, especially the physically inactive, to try out and practice new sports and disciplines that are adapted to their needs.
