Project Description

 

 

Project background and aim

 There is only a limited amount of knowledge on the political conditions for and structural characteristics of sports clubs that promote social inclusion and volunteering in sport. Most of the existing knowledge is, furthermore, context-specific tied to individual member states within the European Union.   

This project seeks to provide comparable knowledge across ten EU member states, convert it into concrete suggestions for action, and disseminate this knowledge to politicians and sports professionals in Europe. The main aim is to promote social inclusion and volunteering in sports clubs in Europe.
