Webinar Sustainabiltiy In Sport


The CHANGE project will contribute to the promotion of integrity and values in sport by focusing on promoting and improving good governance in sport. The organised sport movement will be equipped to adopt innovative governance approaches, tailored for grassroots sports, to build sustainable and innovative ways to tackle present and future challenges.


The main aim of the project is to develop an educational programme on innovation and change management within the organised sports movement. The programme will focus on building resilience and environmental, economic and social sustainability by focusing on: Digitalisation, Inclusion/Engagement and Sustainability.


A group of experts will gather a comprehensive overview of best practices and create an interactive programme that will support the European grassroot sport movement in their work to build sustainable and innovative ways to tackle present and future challenges.


Move4Nature uses outdoor sports, particularly hiking, as a tool to teach youth, and adults, about the importance of the environmental protection and climate action. Through hiking and physical activity in nature, the project also promotes healthy lifestyles, inclusion and intergenerational exchange.


We teamed up with experts from the fields of environment, water and wildlife protection, mountaineering and inclusive hiking, and physical education to deepen our knowledge on working with youth and for the planet.
