SPORT for Dialogue” is a 5-day SEMINAR 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 social inclusion, intercultural dialogue, diversity and integration both in local communities and on international level. Participants will reflect on fields of exclusion, local communities facing interculturality, tolerance, challenges and possible solutions to overcome problems with special emphasis on sports. The seminar will be put in the context of diversity and anti-discrimination education. Participants will present and discuss methods used in their activities to promote integration and mutual understanding through sport. Seminar will be carried out within the use of different active methods like debates, workshops, presentations and visits to local projects. We wish to exchange tools used by organisations, discuss ideas for international activities and projects. The seminar will be accompanied by an online report.

For the visibility and multiplication of the project ideas and recommendations as well as good practice of partner organisations will be collected and issued in a booklet.. At the end of this seminar the "SPORT FOR DIALOGUE" booklet containing articles, interviews and project ideas created by all 29 participants will be published.
