Promoting European values through sport at the municipal level

Description of the Call for Proposals

Deadline for applications:  26/7/2018 (12 pm Brussels time).

In the context of this preparatory action, it is proposed to provide support to organizations that promote initiatives in the field of sports at the local level in order to spread the positive values of sport.

Support should be given to organizations seeking to promote sport and physical activity at municipal level, in particular within the European Capital of Culture, Community and Sport City, as their action benefits all citizens. The support of organizations that are active throughout the year in this field is in the interest of our society, in terms of capacity development, networking and the ability to develop 2 specific projects at the local level. This support can take various forms, which together contribute to the promotion of the positive values of sport.

This preparatory action will be implemented in two parts:
