"CORPLAY - Counter Radicalization, PLAY sport" is a European project that focuses on strengthening the role of sport in preventing radicalization of young people, developing an in-depth innovative approach to tackle intolerance, xenophobia and discrimination, while increasing the participation of young people in sport. According to a report by the European Union's Fundamental Rights Agency, racism, xenophobia and other forms of intolerance are causing problems at European level, even at amateur sporting level.

The main objectives of the project were to approach, identify and highlight the role of sport both in the processes of radicalisation and in radicalisation itself. At the same time, particular attention was paid to developing learning and awareness-raising tools for coaches, referees, technical advisors in the field of sport, physical education teachers and other stakeholders, while developing perspectives for policy-making, a new and innovative perspective and framework for improving the capacities of sport organisations to address violence and extremism and develop an inclusive society.

The project involved the large-scale Erasmus + SPORT partnership, whose partners came from 5 different countries (Greece, Italy, Bulgaria, Bulgaria, Turkey and Portugal) and covered a wide range of expertise and experience. The collaborative learning platform has created a much more resilient community, where sport organisations and young people on the one hand and local stakeholders on the other hand work together effectively to address current societal challenges, including sport.

Project outputs:

1. a new knowledge and awareness framework

2. a set of learning models, tools and open educational resources, -an innovative awareness-raising game

3. a collection of experiences-stories in order to understand what radicalisation is and how it can happen at grassroots sport level

4. non-formal and informal MODELS training courses for coaches, sports organisations and physical education teachers in schools to improve their understanding and capacity to engage with young people at risk of radicalisation to improve their awareness of sport as a means of addressing societal challenges.

5. CORPLAY Open Educational Resources containing teaching, learning and research materials that are available and shared through an open platform for free use, adaptation and distribution.
