Symposium on Social Inclusion and Volunteering in Sport Clubs
Department of Organisation and History of Sport at Józef Piłsudski University of Physical Education in Warsaw is organising the "Symposium on Social Inclusion and Volunteering in Sport Clubs"
The Symposium will consist of separate sessions, free of charge, held during the "Olympic Sport and Sport for All" XXI International Scientific Congress in Warsaw.
Date of the Symposium: 16th September 2017
The area of volunteering and social inclusion in sports clubs is at the heart of interest in all of the countries in Europe. Therefore, we would like to invite the researchers, managers of sport institutions, government representatives as well as other people interested in sport for an international symposium on social inclusion and volunteering in sport.
WHY THIS THEME?
For the majority of sports clubs, volunteering is the most important resource that allows them to survive. Therefore, voluntary work represents the basis for the inclusion of people in the communities that sports clubs constitute, but the significance of voluntary work is even broader. Volunteering is a form of active citizenship based on reciprocal relations between members. This makes volunteering relevant not only as a resource for sports clubs and members, but also for society in a broader sense. Second, sports clubs are believed to be the arenas for organised sport that are most conducive to social inclusion. This is due to the democratic structure of sports clubs, the social activities, and the joint responsibility of members for the day to day operation of the clubs. These elements bring members together in communities with broader significance than communities based solely on the sports activity.
ABOUT SIVSCE PROJECT
Józef Piłsudski University of Physical Education in Warsaw is proud to be one of the 11 partners of the international Erasmus + Sport project "SIVSCE - Social Inclusion and Volunteering in Sport Clubs in Europe". The project has been implemented since January 2015. The main objective of the project is to provide detailed knowledge of national, regional and local sports clubs in selected European countries and make a diagnosis of the phenomenon of social inclusion and volunteerism in sports clubs. Another aim is to provide data on how the government and organizations can support the sporting activities in all the clubs. The intention of the project is to transform this knowledge into concrete action and collect best practices in this area as well as share and disseminate the achieved results.
