Project: EDCaV – Education of swimming coaches and volunteers in working with Persons with Disabilities

The phenomenon of the impact of sport on all levels of social events has a special impact on the integration of persons with disabilities into society, in order to meet their personal needs. The education of swimming coaches and volunteers (within sport clubs and associations) to work with PWDs, aims to ensure quality and professional work, given that this is a very sensitive population. At this stage, there are still no formal trainings for coaches to work with Persons with disability in Croatia or in Slovenia. Everything is left to informal education, so this project has additional weight. There is lack of clubs working with PWDs in both countries so this cooperation is necessary to encourage more clubs to engage more PWDs in their activities. Apart from working with people with disabilities who can swim, aim of the project is to also educate coaches and volunteers on techniques to teach the non-swimmers with disabilities how to swim. Trainers who work with PWDs must have additional knowledge regarding the type of disability they encounter when working with PWDs. Practical part of education will not be limited to one disability and will include persons with different type of disabilities (physical, mental, blind, deaf…) and will aim to involve persons of all age ranges. Apart from the trainers, the project activities will also include volunteers who are necessary in order to carry out the training process, and they will also undergo the same training as the trainers.




Project: Boosting Outstanding Omnicompetent Successful Talents

Acronym: BOOST

“BOOST-Boosting Outstanding Omnicompetent Successful Talents” is a 24 months strategic partnership aiming to create new education and personal development for young people in Europe through delivering interactive educational formats and methods based on transversal skills development.

In the increasingly complex reality nowadays, the development of a set of basic and transversal skills is with high priority to satisfy the requirements of employers and the imperatives of a concrete exercise of citizenship, as advanced by the EC in “New Skills Agenda for Europe”(2016).Rapidly changing society and World’s transformation observed in the last decade are providing new educational trends, increased demands of the labour market and adaptivity of educational opportunities, especially during biosecurity emergencies such as the

COVID-19 pandemic. The new reality requires skills and knowledge that goes beyond a specific profession itself and leads to the emerging need of high level of possession of transversal skills, including young people. “Transversal skills are those typically considered as not specifically related to a particular job, task, academic discipline or area of knowledge but as skills that can be used in a wide variety of situations and work settings”(IBE 2013).“These skills are increasingly in high demand for learners to successfully adapt to changes

and to lead meaningful and productive lives”(UNESCO UNEVOC).Specific problem, managed by BOOST is the development of transversal skills through specifically designed tools underlining the importance of transversal skills, critical to the effective and goal-oriented personal and professional development of young people in the EU.BOOST is an approach of transnational cooperation involving organizations with outreach to the project target groups and the consortium comprises NGOs and youth associations with huge experience and recognized quality in the youth policies.

BOOST proposal is fully aligned with Erasmus+ objectives to

  • Boost skills and employability
  • Modernise education, training
  • Focus on young people

The aim of KINDER ECO project is to enable educators to exchange knowledge and experience through the international learning community, through integrated domains of education for environmental care and sustainable development. This implies the strengthening and development of professional competencies needed to create a kindergarten (institutional) and extracurricular context for the implementation of the integrated Curriculum of the Institution. Planned project activities will be implemented through various integrated methods and forms with an emphasis on sports and eco activities intended for children from 3 to 7 years. By staying in nature, eco activities, movement and sports, children naturally strengthen and develop all their potentials as well as a positive attitude towards the environment and regular physical activity.

Project: Move Your Baby

Our project ‘’Move Your Life with Your Baby!’’ is an Erasmus + Small Cooperation Partnership project. The purpose of our project is to support new mothers and babies through sports and exercise. This support includes the acceleration of the physical recovery process due to the inclusion of mother and baby in exercise activities, and adaptation of mother and baby to psychosocial life. Aerobic character sports, which include all body muscles such as yoga and yoga -pilates activities, including mother and baby, will be adapted to the needs of the mother and baby. In this way, we want to speed up the postpartum recovery and retention process in the mother, and to ensure that the adaptation process is healthier and more active in the baby. In addition to physical benefits, it is expected that the mother and baby’s quality time will contribute positively to the development of the baby, especially in the social and psychological sense, and will accelerate the postpartum psychological recovery process in the mother. Communication of mother and baby will be strengthened with different exercise programs to be created. When all these issues are brought together, the mobility of trainers working for mothers and babies and the change of good practices are the basis of our project. When designing the project, we considered mothers (who could not be freely involved in exercise activities due to baby care, suffering physical and psychological burnout due to pregnancy) and infants (socially and physically disadvantaged, not involved in an exercise activity on their own). In Erasmus + Sports Small Cooperation Partnership issue, ‘Encourage social inclusion and equal opportunities in sport’, is primary topic.

Project EnterSport is focused on social inclusion of marginal group of children into alpine skiing in the winter and mini-football in the summer, to create a multi-seasonal social inclusion in sports. Our first objective is to non-formally educate 20 marginalized children’s guardians from two different counties, on gathering groups of neglected children they work with and organizing the trips to two different season activities, alpine skiing and mini-football. Our second objective is to educate 10 ski instructors and 10 mini-football coaches from two different countries to take a proper care of neglected children while leading the seasonal sports activities in the mountains and on football field. The non-formal educations will be carried out during the two workshops, the on-snow skiing in Croatia, and on-field mini-football in Serbia. Our third objective is fulfilling the social inclusivity aspects of the project, which is to include 40 marginalized children overall in the two-day workshop activities – 20 children per workshop.

Project: Swim Without Fear

“Swim Without Fear” Project (#SWIM!) is aiming to bring benefits in two directions: benefits for children – future swimmers and their parents and family, and benefits for swimming clubs and their swimming coaches / instructors in both countries Bulgaria and Croatia. Education through sports is one of the most powerful tool for character development and overcoming fears in children which is in connection with one of the main Erasmus+ Programme priority: encouraging participation in sport and physical activity.

Project activities will be:

  • Research in Bulgaria and Croatia in relation to local needs on the topic;
  • Printed edition of the handbook “Swim Without Fear”, which will help parents and organizations in educating children and will be distributed in kindergartens, schools, hotels and swimming pools; • #SWIM! event – in Sofia, Bulgaria to test the handbook methodologies with 10 couples (parent and child) per country;
  • Online platform where an online edition of the handbook and guideline videos will be published. #SWIM! Project is in line with the horizontal objectives, pursued by the Erasmus+ Programme aiming to ensure inclusion and diversity in all fields of education, training, youth and sport.

With the publication of a “Swim Without Fear” handbook, our project aims to show the relationship between parent and child and how to easily use our free time to work to build the character and skills of our children. The implementation of #SWIM! events for 10 couples of parents with children aims to show the other strong connection that would be conducive to overcoming fear, that of a “child to child”. The partner organizations form Bulgaria and Croatia are united by their goal to approve sport (in our case swimming) as a learning tool and to help increasing the physical activity in both countries and also on international level by delivering online free access to the handbook, which will be translated in 3 languages: Bulgarian, Croatian and English.

Project: SENS – For Sustainable Environment, Nature Sports

The idea of our project is to raise awareness of the benefits of practicing ecological behavior in sport for everyone. Its purpose is to promote sports-related environmental education and sports in a safe and clean environment. Its main task is informing that physical activity keeps humanity well and healthy and prolongs the life of individuals. On the other hand, it is very important to protect natural resources for a clean environment and good conditions for future generations. This parallelism is being at the center of our project and to improve the capacity of organizations by cooperating at the international level. It is to promote sports and physical activities that not only contribute to better health but also have a positive impact on the environment. In addition to environmental and sports education and activities, another goal is to create strong cooperation and synergy between partners. The project includes the exchange of experiences and the development of joint guidelines for ecologically sustainable sporting events. Events will be organized in an environmentally sustainable manner, including the collection and recycling of empty soda and water cans and lids that are thrown into the environment. Another component of our project is the collection of best practices from sporting events, which will be published in a booklet. Best practices to promote an active lifestyle will be developed, as well as in accordance with ecological recommendations for the organizers of sporting events and sports clubs. It will include 3 (cycling, trekking and orienteering) selected sporting events as we want to show possible actions not only in the recycling area but also to reduce the negative environmental impact of organized sporting events.
