Gender discrimination and inequality is a well known structural phenomenal of endemic proportion in both Europe and the world.

Big Collaborative Sport “European Everyday of Sport”

European Everyday of Sport

Project Facebook Page

WEBSITE

MVNGO is a partner in the context of the Erasmus + Sport Collaborative Partnership “European Everyday of Sport” coordinated by the Bulgarian NGO “BulSport”, with the contribution of an international Consortium of 7 NGOs from 7 European countries (Bulgaria, Italy, Croatia, Hungary, Lithuania , Poland, Slovakia), operating in the fields of Sport, youth and education. The project will have a total duration of 24 months.

The project aims to improve the sharing of good practices– a priority of the Erasmus + program- identify and promote good practices from the first and second editions of the European Week of Sport as well as encourage participation in Sport and physical activity. The most specific topic of this strategic partnership will be to develop, identify, promote and share good practices.

The current collaborative partnership will carry out various activities at local, national and international levels. It will focus on the collection, development, identification, analysis and sharing of good practices for the promotion of sport and physical activity in Europe and worldwide that can be easily implemented in the work of experts in the aforementioned fields . The project will also focus on the activities implemented in the first and second edition of the “European week of sport” and will collect all the good practices developed in 2015 and 2016 in the member countries. These tools will be very useful in planning the next editions of the EWoS as well as other events to promote physical activity as a means of raising awareness about its health related benefits through laying the grounds for greater participation and equal access, with the ultimate goal of enhancing engagement in Sport for all.

All the activities implemented during the project will be functional to the need to reach out with a particular attention to specific groups and to exploit this opportunity to promote a movement transversal to the various categories and aimed at making physical activity and sport parts of life daily life of an increasing number of people in Europe.

As noted on previous occasions, the tools to make Europe a “nation in motion” are not yet in the vanguard in terms of effectiveness, as can be deduced from the 2009 and 2014 “Eurobarometer” data. This need is the crucial issue that this Consortium will try to deal with addressing different target groups (children, young people, workers, old people, people living in cities and small villages, etc.), emphasizing physical activity as “positive medicine” for personal, professional and social development of individuals.

Capacity Building Youth “Agro-Tourism Itineraty to Sustainable Change”

Agro-Tourism Itinerary to Sustainable Change (ATISC)

Project Facebook Page

“Agro-Tourism Itineraty to Sustainable Change” (ATISC) is an Erasmus Plus Capacity Building Youth project at enhancing Agro-Tourism as a driver of youth employability, social solidarity and environmental sustainability in disadvantaged rural communities in Europe and the Western Balkans by means of strengthening the base of competences and networking of youth NGOs and operators, youngsters and local stakeholders in the field of sustainable Agro-Tourism solutions.

The project is coordinated by the Kosovan organization “Let’s Do It Peja!”, with MVNGO as a partner organization and member of an international Consortium of 6 organizations from Kosovo, Italy, FYROM, Albania, Spain and Serbia.

Rural areas in both European and West Balkans are generally characterized by fewer opportunities for young people in socioeconomic terms. Deprivation suffered by rural youngsters is multifaceted and linked to a varied array of structural issues, among which geographical isolation, poor infrastructure and communication, lower levels of economic activity both caused by and connected to a lower level of public/private investment, insufficient infrastructure of counselling and support to business/employability, in particular for young people.

The compelling necessity and profitability of an adjustment can nowhere be better observed than in the fast-growing Agro-Tourism industry, wherein the local endowment of local resources and typical products/businesses comes to be declined as the centerpiece of specific tourism products/itineraries embedded in local realities. Recent Agro-Tourism trends show that Agro-Tourism offer and practice need to deeply embed factors of environmental, cultural and economic sustainability in a balanced approach to ensure a benefit to the community, the territory as well as a guarantee of the quality of the offer itself towards customer audiences.

The project involves the following activities:

1-Kick-off Meeting at Peja (Kosovo)

Participants: 12 youth workers, 2 per organizzazion

2- Training Course “The Agro-Tourist Challenge” at Peja (Kosovo)

Participants: 24 youth workers and youth leaders (4 per organization)

3- Training Course “A Green Stake” at Sassari (Italy)

Participants: 24 youth workers e youth leaders (4 per organization)

4- Local Activity phase in all partner countries

Participants: 25 disadvantaged youngsters in each partner country

5) Local Stakeholder Conferences in al partner countries

Participants: 25 disadvantaged rural youngsters aged 18-25 and 50 stakeholders in each partner country

6) Creation of a project Web Platform

7) Final Evaluation Meeting at Sassari
