This year, the European Commission will once again present the #BeInclusive awards, celebrating the work of organisations that have harnessed the power of sport to increase social inclusion for disadvantaged groups.
Sport is fun, sport is exciting, sport brings people together. The European Commission recognises sport and physical activity as powerful tools for breaking barriers and building a more inclusive world.
The #BeInclusive Awards were created to help build an inclusive, united society through sport. Your organisation may be working with ethnic minorities, refugees and irregular migrants, people with disabilities, youth groups at-risk or other groups facing challenging circumstances. Let us know how your organisation is using sport to empower and integrate disadvantaged groups.
Entries will be open for the #BeInclusive Awards 2020 from April 14 to June 30. Applications are open to any organisation implementing a project organisation that focuses on social inclusion – public, private, commercial or not-for-profit.
The awards ceremony
The three winners will be announced at a special awards ceremony in December 2020 in Brussels, where they will also have the opportunity to present their projects to an audience of sport inclusion experts - and receive a €10,000 prize!
Showcasing the work of wonderful organisations such as these can promote innovative ideas - and inspire others to build a more inclusive world. This is a unique opportunity to celebrate your organisation’s work – and to take your project to the next level.
