Using sport to encourage active participation of youth in the society

Sport by its nature strives for the betterment of participants’ performance, not only in terms of competing with others, but also to improve oneself in comparison with one’s own previous achievements. It can also promote respect for rules, fair play, non-violence, inclusion, equality, and equal opportunities that are certainly important values in our societies. In many ways sport can also contribute to improving social skills.

Participation and active citizenship within the democratic life of any community is fundamentally about having the right, means, space, opportunity and support necessary to participate in and influence decisions the actions and activities that are part of building a better society. This view of participation comes from the European Charter on the Participation of Young People, and clearly goes beyond a narrow understanding of youth participation in terms of just voting and political involvement.

Sport can be a powerful tool to enhance team spirit, solidarity, education and social values, and cooperation. So, the role of sport in promoting social networks and active citizenship is important. As a truly universal language, it is one of the best ways to bring communities together and 10 build trust among members of the society. Its importance and effectiveness in enhancing social development has been supported by the European Commission, the UN, several international non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and academic researchers.

The main objective of the youth exchange is to develop participant’s competences for active citizenship and to broaden their knowledge through sport and to widen participating organisation’s tools for promoting active citizenship.
