Description

The objective of this project is to develop an innovative club-based pilot programme to support Dual Careers that facilitates an optimal combination of high-quality training and education to young athletes practicing water sports, namely canoeing, rowing and swimming.
The Programme will target athletes between 14 and 21 years old, a critical age in which athletic, academic, psycho-social and professional transitions take place.
In total, 100 athletes coming from the three partnering clubs will directly be involved in the testing of the pilot programme.
Athletes will be supported by different experts coordinated by the Dual Career Case Manager (DCCM) as a key figure to integrate medical, psychological, educational and other support services that will be provided by clubs (further information about this profile is available below in this section).
The main aim is to combine a successful educational and sporting career of athletes by bringing them the right supporting services from their own clubs, and hence contributing that at a later stage of life they keep a balance between sports training and employment.
The project directly contributes to the EU Dual Careers strategy, by designing pilot initiatives, testing them, gathering lessons learned and finally disseminating them to the most relevant European audience. Actions proposed are deeply inspired and aligned with the EU Guidelines on Dual Careers.

Description

The main objective of TASEM (Training Athletes for Sports Events Management) project is to promote and support dual careers for athletes by setting up a transnational network of stakeholders that will develop a platform for the training of athletes in the management and organization of sport events, hence contributing to their employability.
Through the collaboration of a transnational partnership comprised of 15 partners covering 9 countries, the project will conceive and develop a Dual Career Training Programme In Sports Events Management (TPISEM), delivered by the academic organizations integrated in the consortium and targeting 30 athletes and 15 coaches affiliated to the Olympic Committees and National Federations involved.
Thus, the partnership brings together a range of key stakeholders jointly working for the strategic development of new educational and training opportunities for athletes in the field of sport management, notably around sports events, which will also benefit from the programme and develop a greater social legacy.
The project will focus on the euro-mediterrenean region, making the most of the Mediterranean Games to be hold in the city of Tarragona in 2017 (running from 30th June to 9th July 2017).

Description

The Mediterranean is under threat due to the inappropriate practice and development associated with mass tourism.
 
As a consequence areas of high tourist attraction in coastal cities are reaching their limit on carrying capacity, with a direct impact not only on the urban environment but on key elements that define MED Culture.In this context, ALTER ECO enhances the local sustainable development of tourism by promoting Mediterranean Identity through the implementation of alternative tourist strategies in 6 pilots co-designed and implemented by public and private stakeholders.
 
The project provides the opportunity of testing, in representative MED cities, used as LIVING LAB, existing methodologies and tools arisen in previous high impact projects in the field of sustainable tourism or proposed by key stakeholders, with the aim of reaching holistic and realistic tourist strategies at local and regional level that allow transferability in the MED territory.
Project results will support policy makers to make more informed and integrated decisions for the governance and management of tourism in the Mediterranean and at the same time will enhance the coordination of actions between public and private stakeholders towards the implementation of the raised strategies in order to create new business opportunities.
 
ALTER ECO will contribute to improve knowledge and decision making capacities, including a better use of observation, monitoring and planning in the field of sustainable tourism.

Description

The sport community faces several risks that threaten its integrity.
To face them, a collaborative partnership of 7 EU public and private organisations, following a participatory approach involving all concerned stakeholders, proposes a specific response: the Ethics4Sports (E4S) project.
The partnership covers Spain, Italy, Germany, France and the United Kingdom.
The main objective of E4S is to develop innovative mechanisms to promote ethics in grassroots sports and ensure its effective enforcement, by enhancing the capacities and skills of sporting bodies and allowing them to give more efficient responses to risks threatening the integrity of sport.In order to achieve the general objective of the project, PPs will pursue the fulfilment of the following specific objectives:

  1. develop and/or improve new Codes of Ethics for sporting bodies to spread ethical values in sport, following an inclusive and cross-cutting approach;
  2. develop a set of verifiable indicators to facilitate the monitoring and evaluation of the Codes of Ethics’ enforcement;
  3. effectively enforce the Codes of Ethics developed and make the most of new technologies (through the so-called “Ethics App”) to fulfil this aim, by conducting pilot tests;
  4. test, monitor and evaluate the enforcement of the Code of Ethics, hence gathering lessons learned for replicability around Europe;
  5. set-up a public-private network of institutions aiming to cooperate in the field of ethics in sport and identifying new members to be engaged in the future and enrich the alliances

Description

The overall objective of the proposed project is to encourage positive educational values in team & individual grassroots sports among children and youth.
The specific objectives of the proposed project are:

  1. Creation of a integrated methodology enforcing positive values in individual sports, based on the pre-existing Green Play methodology for team sports;
  2. Implementation of Green Play methodology for Team and Individual Sports through pilot tests involving schoolchildren from 5 to 18 years old, featuring the use of new technologies;
  3. Monitoring and assessment of behavioural changes in the target groups and gathering of lessons learned for replicating in other parts of Europe;
  4. Identification and networking with organisations working in the promotion of positive educational values in sport and through the practice of sport; The proposed project seeks to fight all forms of intolerance, discrimination and violence by promoting positive educational values in sports and through sports. Green Play is an alternative and innovative methodology implemented by Baix-Llobregat Sports Council based in Catalonia, Spain, since 2013 and represents a radical departure from the current model of scoring system in school sport competitions.
