About this event

Outdoor sports can create inspirational opportunities for people with disabilities and this webinar will provide opportunities to hear about inspirational projects and programmes that will show how we can be more inclusive for people with disabilities, people from socio-economically disadvantaged communities, immigrants and others who are under represented in sport.

The EU White Paper on Sport states that “The specific needs and situation of under-represented groups therefore need to be addressed, and the special role that sport can play for young people, people with disabilities and people from less privileged backgrounds must be taken into account.”

This webinar will provide opportunities to share ideas and discuss opportunities for future projects.
