SIVSCE: Social Inclusion and Volunteering in Sports Clubs in Europe

Brief me

There is a limited amount of knowledge on the political conditions for and structural characteristics of sports clubs that promote social inclusion and volunteering in sport. Most of the existing knowledge is, furthermore, country-specific. In light of this, the project seeks to collect, analyse and discuss comparable knowledge across ten European countries, convert it into concrete suggestions for action, and disseminate this knowledge to politicians, sports professionals and sports volunteers in Europe. By doing this, the project aims to promote social inclusion and volunteering in European sports clubs.
