Project

The European Games of Integrated Fencing project intends to support, enhance and promote the fundamental role sport can play for young people and people with disabilities with regard to integration, social inclusion and personal development, with the aim of creating more integrated and cohesive societies. With this purpose in mind, the project aims at organizing a major sport event of integrated fencing involving able-bodied and disabled young athletes coming from 13 European countries, who will compete in mixed teams to valorise the concept of integrated sport, and developing parallel educational and informational activities to raise awareness of the value of sport and physical activity in promoting health, well-being and social and cultural inclusion. In this perspective, the EU.GIF project fosters the achievement of the “Not-for-Profit European event” priority “Social inclusion through sport”, in the framework of the ERASMUS+ PROGRAMME 2014 – 2020.
