  • To promote sport as educational tool for social inclusion specially for people with fewer opportunity.
  • To deepen knowledge about EU measures in the field of sport under the new Erasmus+ programme.
  • To provide knowledge and competences to develop new youth sport projects and encourage closer synergies and collaboration between youth work and sport field.


  • SPLUS Training Course took place in an extremely active way, combining theory and practical workshop through non-formal learning methods. Starting from an analysis of key concepts (fewer opportunities, sport, inclusion, youth work, Erasmus+), participants reflected about the role of sport at local and European level, the youth involvement in sport, motivation of doing outdoor activities and barriers that people can daily face.


  • SPLUS – Public Report. The report aims at sharing the experience of Sport Plus, a training course focused on sport as an educational tool for promoting social inclusion. The training course was held in Palermo, from the 7th till the 15th of April and involved 46 participants from 12 European countries. The report describes the learning flow, activities, tools and methodologies used and results of the training course.
