Youth workers and youth leaders play an important role in supporting young people and they should, in our eyes, also play a vital role in supporting young people's reflection on their personal development. Creating awareness of skills (both new and old), a (re) gained confidence and inspiration will lead to empowerment of young people, promoting active participation in the society by youth, which will lead to sustainable development of the different social groups and countries in Europe.
The concept of teamwork is extremely important to the success of any team and that is how sport can contribute to the development of skills in young people. The theme of sports will show the participants the importance of teamwork and we believe that sport is the best way to highlight and demonstrate sustainability.
Champions Factory LTD would like to carry out this project, because we believe that sport, as a unique tool, has the potential to provide a sustainable development of the youth and the society in the EU member Countries and neighboring the European Union.
The main idea behind this project is to allow participating organizations and participants understand how they can use sport as a tool for sustainable development, e.g. educational.
Through "Sport for Sustainable Development" youth workers will be involved and empowered to bring out the potential of the youngsters they work with and learn how to use sport and act as multipliers.
