Project Description: ”SPORT for Dialogue” is a 6-day TC on good practice in the field of social inclusion and intercultural dialogue through sport. Topics discussed during the seminar are connected with different aspects of human rights, diversity, inclusion, youth work, fair play etc. in local communities, especially in a school setting. To deepen the context and broaden publicity, the training course will be organised in Football People Action Weeks 2015 period. The training will consist of three overlapping parts: first and the shortest part will be led by trainers in order to create a safe environment and a common ground of mutual understanding of the main topics of this TC through the use of active methods and discussions of local challenges. In the next part of the training participants will share their "best methods practice" and participate in study visits (in smaller groups) in local organisations involved in the topic of youth, intercultural dialogue, inclusion and fair play sport. This part will also include working on specific case studies reflecting various youth social environments. In the last part participants will be invited to create new innovative methods to be used with their target groups. This will provide participants with possibility to elaborate a concrete way of running youth work activities using the competences gained during the first two parts of the training and their own experience. At the end of this TC the "SPORT FOR DIALOGUE" booklet containing articles, interviews and project ideas created by all 21 participants will be published. Malta UNESCO Youth Association will be distributing copies locally to interested organisation and affected local communities.
