Sports as an Equal Playground – SPED

SPED is an international project that focuses on inclusion, social accessibility and equality in youth sports activities. The project is implemented with Erasmus+ Sport funding. 

In addition to the Youth Academy, the project has three other partners: 

  • Active Youth Association (Asociacija Aktyvus Jaunimas), Lithuania; 
  • AICEM (Associazione internazionale per la cooperazione e l’educazione), Italy; 
  • BAIS – Budapest Association for International Sports, (Budapesti Egyesület a Nemzetközi Sportért), Hungary 

We act as the coordinator of the project and bring to the project, for example, expertise in inclusion and social accessibility of sports and leisure time activities.  

The aim of the project is to share and make use of the partners’ good practices, to compile good practices into a guide and to train members of the organisations and volunteers. The outputs and materials will be distributed to sports and leisure operators. A podcast series will also be created during the project.
