Call for proposals: Promotion of European values through sport initiatives at the municipal level
Deadline: 26 July 2018
This preparatory action proposes to support organisations that promote sport initiatives at local level with the goal of disseminating the positive values of sport.
Values lie in the core of the European Union since the EU project was built on the common values of its Member States. Article 2 of the Treaty on European Union (TEU) states that the Union is based on the values of respect for human dignity, freedom, democracy, equality, the rule of law and respect for human rights, including the rights of persons belonging to minorities. In this context, Europe needs more cohesive and inclusive societies in order to allow citizens to play an active role in democratic life. By providing a sense of belonging and a strong attachment to the principles and traditions which constitute the heart of open societies, sport can be a powerful tool for promoting common values.
