Together in Sport

METAdrasi in cooperation with the Hellenic Olympic Committee and the German Olympic Sports Confederation (DOSB), is implementing the European pilot project “Together in Sport”.

The main aim of the project is, using sports as a social institution, to give the chance to asylum seeking children and youngsters to get in touch and learn more about organized sports, but also to develop relationships through sports with their peers from the local communities.
The project, which is offered free of charge, is addressed to asylum seeking children and youngsters aged 7-17 and their peers from local communities. “Together in Sport” is implemented with the support of cooperating Μunicipalities in Attica and the rest of Greece.

“Together in Sport” aims to:

  • Cultivate and promote values like mutual respect, team spirit and intercultural tolerance.
  • Familiarize the participants with the values of Olympic education.
  • Improve the everyday life of asylum seeking children/youngsters and to enhance their sense of belonging.
  • Strengthen the existing structures and the initiatives regarding the reception and the care especially of unaccompanied minors at local level.
  • Promote new communication channels through sports, in order to enable the peaceful coexistence among children and youngsters coming from different cultural backgrounds.
  • Reduce the reservations of local communities towards asylum seekers and improve and strengthen social cohesion.

The Hellenic Olympic Committee (HOC) and the German Olympic Sports Confederation (DOSB) have jointly undertaken the supervision and implementation of a diverse sports education offer. All children and youngsters will have the opportunity to participate on a regular basis in sports activities, in various types of sports. The programme also includes recreational and cultural activities of an educational nature (visits to museums, archaeological sites, sports facilities etc.)

The sports programme will be implemented in each municipality separately, in accordance with the age groups of the participants. All participants will receive free of charge athletic/sports equipment and souvenirs for their participation.

The ultimate goal of  this pilot project  is gaining expertise for conceptualizing similar projects in future, but especially to produce the greatest possible positive social impact for the local communities.

This project is implemented in the regions of Attica, Ioannina and Kavala.
