SUMMARY:

The overall vision of the project “European Sport Inclusion Network - Promoting Equal Opportunities of Migrants and Minorities through Volunteering in Sport” is to involve those who are at risk of social exclusion. This has been attempted by increasing sports participation of disadvantaged groups by promoting equal access to organized sport. A key objective is to increase volunteering of migrants and minorities through the establishment of equal partnerships and training of mainstream sport organizations.

ESPIN is the follow-up initiative to the EU project “Sport Inclusion Network (SPIN)–Involving migrants in mainstream sport institutions” which was implemented in 2011–2012.

 

OBJECTIVES:

  • Increase volunteering and sports participation of migrants and minorities through the establishment of equal partnerships and training of mainstream sport organisations
  • To generate evidence-based knowledge about the situation of migrants and minorities in European sport regarding access, participation and volunteering and to make use of that knowledge to develop a European quality framework to increase volunteering and equal opportunities of migrants and minorities in sport clubs
  • To capacity-build and empower migrants and ethnic minorities to challenge exclusion and discrimination and harness their role as volunteers (coaches, administers, referees) in sport clubs
  • Develop educational tools and raise awareness among sport stakeholders about issues of exclusion and discrimination and how to improve social inclusion in sport organisations
