Ability of sports sector to affect physical activity levels tends to be underutilized & it is recommended to support local authorities and NGOs that promote/organize sport. We are trying to put EU Guidelines/policies into action by educating more youth workers for quality envisioning and promoting the youth sport work events that thus contribute to increasing participation in quality sports. In order to achieve this, our project is also empowering the participants for starting quality and strategic partnerships with other stakeholders of youth sport work and for European Week of Sport (EWS).
The training course “Strategic partnerships and activities for promotion of youth sport work during the European Week of Sport” gathers 32 participants, trainers and staff members from 14 partner organisations from 13 countries (Serbia, Albania, Montenegro, Croatia, FYR Macedonia, Slovenia, Italy, Romania, Bulgaria, Spain, Malta, Estonia and Cyprus). It will be held in Novi Sad, Serbia on 31/05 – 08/06/2016.
