Very Successful collaboration for “Medicines for Europe’s Ghetto’s” Erasmus+Sports project comes to an end
A successful, two-year long cooperation, came to an end on the 4th and 5th of December. During the two-year project “Medicines for Europe’s Ghettos”, Latvian ”Ghetto Games”, Swedish “Fryshuset”, Danish “DGI”, Malta’s ”Malta BMX” and Estonian ”Estonian Street Sports federation” developed and improved several important ideas for creating a street-culture image. The goal of the project was to create a cooperation platform for street sports organizers and activists as well as to popularize the idea that street sports can be a great instrument to work with young people from different social classes and environments.
A lot was invested during the short, two-year period, but even more has been achieved:
- An educational manual on how to work with young people in street-sports as well as a best practices base on how to organize street sport events were created. (https://www.ghettogames.com/about)
- A homepage www.ghettogames.com was created that will act as an information platform for the biggest street sports events. It will also allow sports organizations to get to know each other and establish new contacts.
- Two street sports events were created – International street sports festival ”Ghetto Games Festival in Ventspils” in 2018 and 2019. (www.ggfest.com) and third international street sports conference “Medicines for Worlds Ghettos” on December 5th 2019. (www.conference.ghetto.lv)
The project is co-financed with the financial support of The European Union program ”Erasmus+: Sports” (contract number: 2017-3316-590605-EPP-1-2017-1-LV-SPO-SCP).
