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. By taking into consideration of this feature of sport has important key roles to promote and protect amateur and professional athletes all around the world.
In this project we aim to educate young athletes to protect themselves from health and safety hazards during their career in sports and to adapt this awareness throughout their lives.
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.
In order to respect themselves they should possess ethical standards, they should eat healty food which will directly affect their athletic performance as well as their life standards. They should definitely avoid drugs and doping materials.They should learn to respect their opponents and accept losses maturely. They should continue their basic and intellectual education besides sports.
