Our project “FUNctional inclusion training for everyone ” /FIT.EU/ is a small collaborative partnership that allows a group of three organization from Bulgaria (Probudnik Association), Croatia (BK Pannonian) and Slovenia (MTB Klub Kranj) to collaborate in the establishment of a transnational network aiming to create, test and implement an innovative set of tools combining sport training with non-formal education and skills acquisition towards a sustainable, open and respectful grassroot-sport environment.

Sport is an accessible tool for acquiring different skills and competencies that influence young people's attitudes and behavior by making them more responsible and adaptable to the environment in which they live and work and to society. However, in order to increase the potential of sport as a tool of educating values, promoting positive behavior and building social skills, it is necessary to unite the efforts of the representatives of sport organizations. In order to promote physical activity the existence of adequate and useful educational tools is a key factor of success. Under these conditions, sport would contribute to an overcoming social bump and the transfer of values such as tolerance and empathy of the playing field in real life.
