SUMMARY OF THE PROJECT
Contemporary society is marked by high complexity, uncertainty and rapid changes and young people represent a highly vulnerable population. Sport is commonly intended as a privileged educative setting, a sort of universal language that can unite people and can be beneficial for social cohesion and inclusion.

The Olympic Charter establishes the values an athlete should possess. We are aiming to reach as many young athletes as possible and teach them these values. On the other hand; Olympism is a philosophy of life, exalting and combining in a balanced whole the qualities of body, will and mind. blending sport with culture and education, Olympism seeks to create a way of life-based on the joy found in effort, the educational value of a good example and respect for universal fundamental ethical principles.In order to reach to a level of society with people respecting themselves and each other we should start giving this line of education to youngsters of 12 to 16 years of age which is the target group in our project.
