Social inclusion and volunteerism in sport

Sport without Boundaries

What is the problem?

In today’s society availability of digital entertainment is increasing dramatically hence, young people often overlook the importance of sport and healthy lifestyle. According to the research carried out by Eurostat, 90% of young people use computer and daily watch TV. This naturally leads to less physical activity, and consequently, higher obesity and other health related problems (WHO statistics show that prevalence of obesity nearly doubled between 1980 and 2018). At the same time, youth have less time and willingness for face to face communication and active leisure time with their peers.   

Sport Volunteerism

Instead of unhealthy daily life routines

''Social, cultural and educational acquisitions gained with sports also influence the social lives of individuals.''

'27.16% of Turkish People do not exercise/participate to sport activities.'

''Effective usage of sports by the state as a social policy tool shall contribute dramatically in solving social problems.'

"One day, I had a thought... “What if I don’t get off that skateboard?”. That was a very important “what if” that pushed me to keep going and exploring."

Domantas Antanavicius
