Kick-off Meeting of the project
COunter Radicalization, PLAY sport
We are pleased to officially announce the launch of the Erasmus+ Sport Project “CORPLAY – COunter Radicalization, PLAY sport”.
The main objective of the project “CORPLAY” is to enhance the role of sport in preventing youth radicalization, by developing a sport grassroots innovative approach to tackle intolerance, xenophobia and discrimination leading to extremism, while increasing youth participation in sport.
The project aims at understanding the role of sports in both radicalization and de-radicalization processes and at arranging learning and awareness tools for grassroots coaches, referees sport managers, physical activity teachers and various stakeholders, while developing a CORPLAY perspective for policy recommendations and will provide a new and innovative perspective and framework to improve capacities and awareness of sport organizations to tackle violence and extremism and to develop a more inclusive society.
