InterSport – IS 101090395
The project will be an Erasmus Plus Sport Small Collaborative partnerships, according to Erasmus Plus
“IS” general objective is to raise awareness on intersex-related issues in the field of sports, by bringing
together the key staff of five European sport/youth organizations in order to foster awareness-raising, mutual
learning, cooperation and exchange of good practices in the field of intervention. As such, the project’s
specific objectives are to
- raise awareness on intersex-related issues in the field of sports through the study of available
data and existing policies, the exchange of good practices with other sport/youth organizations
and the direct dialogue with the target groups;
- increase coaches’/trainers’/youth workers’ socio-professional skills in order to enable them to offer higher quality services and to better address intersex people’s needs through sports;
- promote the exchange of good practices at the EU level and create transnational efforts in order
to raise other sport organizations’ awareness as well as to promote continued partnerships on
the theme of intervention. We are aware that to reach our GOAL we need to involve as many
people as possible. We have defined a strategy of active involvement of heterogeneous
stakeholders. It will be important to involve other European and national networks with the same
mission of this project.
