The main objective of the Sport as Values project is capacity building of organisations and sport professionals in Balkan grassroots sports movement. One of the main focuses is on the organisational development of sports clubs, organisations and federations within the grassroots sports movement in a structured, dynamic and systematic way. The second objective is about the personal development of sports professionals – coaches, managers, event organisers or club leaders – to learn about how to transfer values through sports activities and how to organise sustainable events with cross-border cooperation and cultural inclusivity.   We hope to create sustainable, long-lasting partnerships in the Balkan region, with skilled and knowledgeable organisers who will successfully promote the positive impact of grassroots sports and the values in sports which will result in stronger, more peaceful and more connected societies.
