On 30th September 2018, partner GEA organized a Sport for Families event in Prato della Valle, Padova, within the European Week of Sport, a great opportunity to disseminate information of PLAY.
The event is part of another Erasmus+ Sport project “P.A.RE.N.T.S - Physical Activity, RElations & Networking, within families Through Sport”, that aims at promoting sport, health, solidarity and volunteering for and with the families. In a full day event where all can freely discover various sports and other activities, learn, play and have fun together, GEA hosted an entire area of the square dedicated to sport for families, games sports and information about wellbeing, volunteering and inclusion through sport for children, youth and families, GEA volunteers spreaded and disseminated flyers and information among kids, families, teachers and volunteers about our PLAY project, whose objectives are coherent and relevant with the day.
The event was held within the Fair of Volunteering of Padua’s province organized by CSV (Centro Servizi Volontariato), CSI (Centro Sportivo Italiano) and Padua’s Municipality, with the participation of 15.000 people and the active involvement of more than 250 volunteering associations.
The football world came together in huge numbers for the 2018 #FootballPeople weeks last month, Europe's biggest social change campaign in European sport.
More than 2,000 Football People activities took place in more than 60 countries across the globe last month as football united to celebrate diversity and equality. This year's activities went even further in bringing together grassroots groups, professional football, national associations and minority groups, with over 110,000 people getting involved. We want to thank all of you who organised events, engaged in activities and supported the campaign both on the pitch and online.
