The Italian sports association A.S.D. Team SoloGhisa Fitness is happy to invite you to apply for participation in their upcoming youth exchange “Power of sport”.
It is an ERASMUS+ funded youth exchange for young people interested in better understanding how to promote gender equality and fight discrimination and doping.
The exchange will take place in Potenza, Italy from August 05th to August 11th of 2019.
Applicants for the youth exchange must be residents in one of the countries of the partner organizations: Italy, Romania and Serbia.
The deadline for applying is July 4th.
Sport is a universal language. At its best it can bring people together, no matter what their origin, background, religious beliefs or economic status is. When young people participate in sports or have
access to physical education, they can experience real exhilaration even as they learn the ideals of teamwork and tolerance.
The EU encourages support for sport and physical activity through various policy initiatives in the field of education and training, including the development of social and civic competences.
That is why we turned to the world of sport for help in our work for fight against discrimination of any kind (gender, race, religion), social exclusion and doping.
Through this project we intend to produce and disseminate video content that promotes all the values of sport, creating an international media campaign with a positive impact in society.
