The summit is bringing together Laureus funded projects from across the European Union for three days of networking, training, and knowledge sharing in the use of sport as a tool for international development.
The event is being attended by Laureus staff from seven Laureus country offices and about 100 young leaders and staff from Laureus funded projects across Europe. Activities include sports based workshops that promote fair play, peace building and health education.
One such workshop is a fair play street soccer tournament, bringing out the greatest life lessons of the ‘beautiful game’ such as respecting opponents, following rules, and team work.
The aims of the Summit are to share of knowledge of how sport can be used as a social, educational and development tool, and to strengthen and unite the European network of Laureus funded projects.
The summit is part-funded by the Youth in Action programme of the European Union.
