Project background

Objective: to prevent violence and intolerance in sport through education and promotion of values of respect, courage, gender equality, inclusion and non-violence. The topic we have chosen for our project is: »Combat violence and tackle racism, discrimination and intolerance in sport«. We are aware that the problem of violence and intolerance in sport is not properly addressed in our communities, so we want to make a difference. In our local environments, the violence in sport is practically a taboo subject. We have only very limited number of reports and researches about these problems in our country, but according to the reports from other EU countries and other countries around the world, the violence in sport must be also present in our countries. Our aim is to prevent violence and intolerance in sport through education and promotion of values of respect, courage, gender equality, inclusion and non-violence. By doing this we intend to change the mind sets of people and initiate social change that will provide safer environment for everyone.


– A survey of the existing policies and strategies to tackle violence and intolerance in sport in different countries in EU and abroad, adaptation of this policies and strategies to our environment and implementation into grassroots sport organisation in the countries of all partners.

– Development of educational programs for coaches, managers, volunteers and other sport professionals about the problem of violence and intolerance in sport and implementation of educational programs into grassroots sport organisations.

– Development of practical tools that we can use in sport to educate children and youth about how to resist bullying, violence, intolerance and discrimination and help them cope with the violence they encounter in everyday life.

– Educate coaches about the procedures in case they recognize violence or if they are trusted by children, youth and adults about the violence they encounter.

– Promotion of the activities and the results of the project in the local environment of each partner and in as many EU territories as possible with the help of Ambassadors of Nonviolence. Ambassadors of Nonviolence will be famous athletes, well known in local communities.
