Born 2 Run: Upgraded is a project consisting of two 11-days youth exchanges funded by the Erasmus+ Youth Mobility programme and focusing on developing young people’s competence in running, coordinating running events and other sports in the community, including and engaging other young people, especially those from marginalized, vulnerable and underprivileged backgrounds.
Both exchanges will bring together different partners from the countries of Wales (UK), Italy, Belgium, and Macedonia. 16 participants will take part supported by 4 group leaders. The exchanges will use non-formal methods and activities to help participants connect the use of sporting events such as small to long distance races with inter-cultural learning, breaking down barriers to inclusion, experiential learning, development of critical thinking, developing teamwork and citizenship.
The focus of the exchanges will be experiencing sport and coordinating community sporting events, thus developing young people’s abilities to use sports as a learning tool, formally, informally and non-formally. Using these methods to raise awareness about environmental issues, human separation from the natural world and explore the possibilities to act toward sustainable living culture as well as tools for breaking cultural, social and geographical barriers.
