“ACROSS – Growing Young Through Sport”
The project “ACROSS – Growing Young Through Sport” is implemented by “Move It” (Greece) as the coordinating NGO together with the NGOs “Libero” (Serbia) and “Idea” (North Macedonia) and the sports clubs “AC Panorama” (Greece), “GroBasket” (Serbia) and “S.C. Aleks-Delfini” (North Macedonia).
OUR MAIN GOAL
The aim of the “ACROSS” project is to promote sports as a means of intergenerational dialogue and foster intergenerational understanding and lifelong learning through sports.
WHAT WE WANT TO ACHIEVE
People can connect through sport on levels beyond just communication with words. Sports and physical activity tap into the movement of our bodies and trigger physiological and emotional responses that otherwise may stay dormant when engaging in verbal exchanges.
The ideal medium for connecting people of different backgrounds, cultures, or in this case ages.
The ACROSS Guide is a unified guide on how to conduct effective intergenerational sports activities – something that can take us from step A-Z. We are going to slowly take you through every step of the process and guide you through different scenarios so that you can find what best fits you and your participants! This adaptive guide will allow you to follow step-by-step methods, to ensure that seniors are socially included and as such foster intergenerational understanding and lifelong learning through sports.
The ACROSS Guide provides a roadmap for all organizations that want to organize intergenerational learning and guides them throughout every step of implementing intergenerational activities through sports.
IT’S YOUR SAY
No matter what words may say…the voices of real people are those who will make a difference
The project “ACROSS – Growing Young Through Sport” is co-funded by the European Union.
