SPORT & NON FORMAL EDUCATION
A PATHWAY TO COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT
“A programme to promote education in the sport and playing field”
What is Sport and Education?
The EU’s definition of Sport was originally developed by the Council of Europe in its Sports Charter.
It encompasses ‘all forms of physical activity which, through casual or organised participation, aim at expressing or improving physical fitness and mental wellbeing, forming social relationships or obtaining results in competition at all levels’.
Education is the process of facilitating learning, or the acquisition of knowledge, skills, values, morals, beliefs, habits, and personal development.
Education frequently takes place under the guidance of educators; however, learners can also educate themselves.
Education can take place in formal or informal settings, and any experience that has a formative effect on the way one thinks, feels, or acts may be considered.
Typically we distinguish between formal, non-formal and informal education
Aims of the project:
SPORT & NFE aims to create an empowering environment for building up competences of sport sector figures (sport coaches, trainers, PE teachers) by applying sport methodology. The PE teacher/ sport staff-centered will be enabled to understand the NFE concept and therefore to become more competent and secure while applying the ETS methodology.
Non- formal education trainings using sport as a tool for education will be involved. The project will serve to bridge the formal education, NGO and sport sectors, contributing to the creation of long term multi-level cross-sectorial networking and cooperation.
Some of the expected results:
Mundus Bulgaria (Coordinator/Bulgaria), Bulgarian Sport Development Association (Bulgaria), SPIN SPORT Innovation (Germany), Regional Volunteer Center (Poland), Fundacion Red Deporte y Cooperacion (Spain), Mine Vaganti NGO (Italy) and Associação Desportiva Cultural e Social de Carvalhais (Portugal)
