Sports Together Meeting 2

The Irish Football Association is hosting a partners meeting from 23-24 September in Belfast within the project “Sport Together – Strengthening Cross-Community Social Inclusion in Post-Conflict Regions” co-funded by the European Commission under the Erasmus+ Sport Programme.

The overall objective of the “Sport Together” project is to strengthen social inclusion in divided communities within grass-roots sport through training, education, awareness-raising, capacity-building of sport stakeholders and cross-community youth sport interventions. This project will have a particular focus on young people particularly girls and disadvantaged groups- in particular refugees and newly arrived migrants and minorities.

The project will use sport to tackle cross-border threats to social cohesion in the partners countries – Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Greece, Ireland and Northern Ireland.

Partners meeting is one of the key events within the project as it is dedicated to monitoring, evaluation and reflection on the achieved results, as well as planning for the further activities to be implemented within the project until 2023.

Besides the meeting the international partners will have a chance to connect, exchange and get to know good practices in Northern Ireland.

It should be noted that this event is invitation only.
