The European project Sport!OP! has reached its final stage. After almost three years of activity, the project will hold its final conference in Granollers on December 14, 2022.

The meeting will allow the European partners to share their experiences with organizations and professionals in Granollers who are interested in the challenge of developing different strategies using sport as a vehicle for social inclusion for vulnerable children and young people, especially girls. Thus, the meeting will serve to present the Action Plans which the partners of the project have put into practice with their local communities. Plans which have served to define a socio-educational proposal that can be reapplied by other entities or in other territories. Furthermore, the Methodological Handbook will be exhibited, a document which aims to bring together the main learning points and recommendations of the coaches and trainers.

These projects are based on the promotion of sport and physical activity, working on the resilience of the participants with the aim of preventing and neutralizing possible situations of social exclusion. Finally, policy recommendations to facilitate decision-making in the projects will be presented. These recommendations have made the project possible and in the future will do so for all those organizations which would like to launch similar projects.

Additionally, there will be an integral conference: “Inclusion, sport and networking; utopia or reality?” by Milena de Murga, head of the Social Action and the International Department of the ‘Unió de Federaciones Esportives de Catalunya (UFEC)’. The conference will look at where synergies can be achieved with other Erasmus+ sport experiences such as the SPRING Project and Sport for the social inclusion of refugees with a gender perspective from the ‘Barça Foundation’ and the ‘Ramassà Sports Association’.
