Monitoring and coaching, through sports, of youngsters at risk of radicalisation

European values such as tolerance, integration and intercultural dialogue. At the same time, in some cases sport clubs can also be a favourable environment to proselytize vulnerable youngsters. Local actors are usually best placed to prevent and detect radicalisation both in the short-term and the long-term.

In view of this background, this Pilot Project will support bottom-up sport-related projects targeting young people who are considered at risk of radicalisation.

Projects should aim at teaching essential skills such as social and communicative competences, critical thinking and problem solving, that can help youngsters at the margin of societies to feel reengaged into society.

The maximum grant will be €60,000. The Commission expects to fund approximately 20 proposals.

Call for proposals for Sport as a tool for integration and social inclusion of refugees

The potential of sport as a tool for social inclusion has now been well documented. Consequently the opportunities that sport projects provide to support social inclusion of refugees in host communities are more and more exploited in many EU Member States.

As sport is one of the tools that might be used for the successful integration of refugees, local sport projects in particular may have an increasing role in trying to facilitate refugees' integration into new communities.

Across the European Union, at Member States' level or within European Union programmes, a wide range of initiatives have been taken and innovative projects are already being implemented.

This pilot project is a contribution to this effort and to a better integration of refugees through sport.

The maximum grant will be €60,000. The Commission expects to fund approximately 20 proposals.
