Education Through Sport is a non-formal educational approach that works with sport and physical activities and which refers to the development of key competences of individuals and groups in order to contribute to personal development and sustainable social transformation.
Education Through Sport is one of the grandest usages of sport. Using the “moving people” motto and the settings in and around sport as a platform for empowering people and raising the social capital of society are some of the most positive impacts of the sport sector. Physical activity and social recreational sport provide value by themselves for each of us taking part. But utilising the situations and settings of sport and physical activity for learning processes adds a valuable dimension– in fact, it adds both value and values.
THROUGHSPORT.EU is devoted to persue these potentials of sport by cooperating with sport educators, PE teachers, coaches as well as youth workers to implement joint projects in the field of citizenship education, Human Rights education and developing democratic participation.
