Move To Improve

Research shows that countries with higher levels of economic development and democratic political traditions are more likely to have a higher number of non-profit sport organisations. Therefore, a striking feature of most former communist and Eastern European countries in the EU has a low level of voluntary participation. Even in countries such as Hungary which had a long tradition of voluntary associations, the communist regime halted the development of the voluntary sector.

Our main Objectives

Aim Of The Project:

  • To promote social inclusion, equal opportunities, and awareness of the importance of health-enhancing physical activity through grassroots sports for underprivileged youth.
  • To promote voluntary activities in sport.

Target Groups:

  • Youth willing to volunteer in sports initiatives and use their skills in a multicultural environment, or simply participate in sports camps across the EU.
  • Other youth & sports organisations in project partner countries (and later on across Europe).
  • Youth, sport volunteers and organisations, as well as general public across the project countries will also increase awareness of the importance of social inclusion, equal opportunities and health-enhancing physical activity through increased participation in, and equal access to, sport for all.
