ReInventing Sporting Traditions (ReSport)

The ReSport project aims to reinvent, reshape and revitalize European Traditionals Sports and Games (TSGs) and adapt them to the trends and requirements of the 21ths century. One of the key issues that the project aims to tackle is how to take advantage of the modern days’ technological solutions for the benefit of promoting and popularizing European TSGs for younger generations. Participation of TSGs not only contributes to enhancing physical activity rates of European citizens but these games and sports are often considered as effective platforms to bring people together regardless of their backgrounds while conveying values of solidarity, diversity, inclusion, cultural awareness and peace.

Through the collaboration of 5 partners from 5 different European countries, the ReSport aims to reintroduce European Traditional Sports and Games into the daily lives of young European citizens (16-30) as a means to tackle modern day’s burning social challenges as the lack of physical activity, sedentary lifestyle and decreased levels of socialization.
