IRIS is partnering ISCA on this brand new project, co-funded by the European Commission under the Erasmus+ Programme. Its aim is to explore grassroots sport diplomacy.
ISCA and IRIS are partnered with a cross-sector group from two continents. This two-year project will run until the end of 2019. It aims for mapping grassroots sport diplomacy actions from around the world ; for leading seven pilots' actions, where selected grassroots sport organizations will have the opportunity to test different approaches to diplomacy across sectors and across borders; for proposing recommendations for future work in this field ; for launching an online hub of new knowledge, best practices and networking opportunities for civil society organizations.
IRIS is leading the first intellectual output and drafting recommendations at the end of the project.
