Sporting Equals
Date du début: 1 oct. 2016, Date de fin: 30 juin 2017 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

Sporting Equals is a 9 month project which consists of collaborative activity between partners to build future projects for young people who are discriminated against and have fewer opportunities as a result of their sexual orientation or gender identity. There are many difficult circumstances, prejudices and discrimination for lesbian, gay, bisexual, intersex and queer identifying young people which cause them to be more marginalised and therefore harder to reach. Youth work is a powerful tool to help reach them, and there are many different methodologies to do so. The participants in this project share belief and experience that sport and outdoor activities are strong and empowering methodologies to reach young people, and to help create lasting social change. The project aims: 1. To build new networks and to establish new partnerships;2. To share best practices and experience in work with LGBTIQ youth;3. To further develop key competencies of youth workers through interpersonal interaction;4. To explore methodologies which use sport and outdoor activity with hard to reach young people;5. To create a collaborative strategy for new project applications; 6. To strengthen the European identity of youth and European level of LGBTQ youth work.With a further objective to be realised through collaborations: 7. To increase tolerance towards LGBTIQ identifying people throughout Europe. Participants will take part in an 8 day contact making seminar to be held in Blair Atholl, Scotland, UK. This multilateral mobility project for youth workers will see 42 youth workers from 9 programme countries: UK, Croatia, Slovenia, Slovakia, Hungary, Bulgaria, Germany, Italy and Iceland coming together to take part. Through non-formal and informal methods of learning, youth workers will share and explore practices which will develop their knowledge and understanding, they will develop key youth work competences, and they will have a stronger investment in European level youth work. The project will produce a collaborative strategy for the participating partners, and an action plan. This will lead to a minimum of 4 further applications to the Erasmus programme to effect social change and personal development through sport and outdoor activity for LGBTIQ young people across Europe. Future projects will do this by targeting a range of stakeholders including: LGBTIQ young people themselves; non LGBTIQ people; sports and youth work organisations who don’t work with LGBTIQ young people.
