INNOCAMP PL will start new (highest score ) Erasmus + Sports project called “JOY in Sports” to promote mental health through sports. The activities will include developing coaches- to-children and children-to-children art-based tools to combat bullying, racism, discrimination and intolerance in sports, whilst being inclusive for disabled, re-located, minorities or lower socially economic background children and youth. It will encourage municipalities to introduce inclusion promotion standards for subsidized interventions and certifications of coaches. JOY will have 30 pilots, reaching 450 children directly via the sport clubs involved. Educational pack will be developed as a base for micro-credential courses in mental health through sports available for inclusive coaches in Poland, Finland, Portugal, Turkey, Estonia and beyond.
