It is with great pleasure that we invite you to take part in the "First International Conference on International Sport Volunteerism” organised within the framework of EYVOL project, "Empowering Youth Volunteers through Sport in the Mediterranean Region".
The Confence will take place in the Maison du Handball, Créteil, France, on 27 November 2019, from 09:00 to 13:00, organised by the Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne University.
EYVOL is a two year transnational and multi-sectoral cooperation initiative co-funded by the European Union within the Erasmus+ programme, leaded by the International Olympic Truce Center (IOTC) and involving partners from the Olympic Movement, the United Nations, Academia and civil society, with the aim to develop and implement innovative educational methods to train youth volunteers on how to utilise sport to promote inter-cultural dialogue, peace and socio-economic development. Please find attached, for your ease of reference, a short abstract of EYVOL and the preliminary agenda of the conference.
While embracing the whole international dimension of sport volunteerism, EYVOL addresses special attention to the Enlarged Mediterranean Region, including the Middle-East, with a view of promoting the role of sport as a way to narrow the gap between the North and the South of the Mediterranean Basin and as a tool to promote social inclusion and inter-cultural dialogue.
During the event, EYVOL’s partners will present the results achieved so far by the project with regard to the analysis on good practices on volunteering for social inclusion through sport, while a number of organizations from different sectors will share information on their good practices, policies and experiences with regard to the recruitment, deployment and training of sport volunteers, also in view of promoting future employability.
