Two projects, which are taking advantage of the Erasmus + program, were announced recently. Both are funded by the European Union.
Youth Exchange "Sports Xchange" is a project for which Croatia and the Czech Republic partnered up. Each country is bringing in a group of 30 young individuals, mostly between 13 - 18 years of age, both boys and girls.
A project titled Inclusion and Gender Equality Through Softball (IGETS) will bring together three softball clubs coming from different parts of Europe – Għajnsielem Redcoats from Gozo, Malta, Olympia Haarlem from the Netherlands and Softball Klub Princ Zagreb from Croatia.
The project involves exchange of best practices relevant to gender equality in sports, efforts to encourage youths to play softball and sports in general, and to increase the participation rate in sports - especially among women and girls by working with key stakeholders in each country.
