ACCESS to appear at the Portuguese Sport Confederation’s workshop “Sport and Environment – a New Challenge”
Upon the Federation’s invitation, Ernest Kovacs, on behalf of the project will travel to Lisbon, Portugal to present and enlarge the ACCESS project’s network.
Organised within another Erasmus+ Sport project’s framework – Green Sports Hub, this one-day event will see an audience of more than 40 people representing professional and grassroot sports as well as a significant number of professors and other participants from the academia.
The event will see Carlos Paula Cardoso, the Portuguese Sport Confederation’s president, opening the event with his reflections on the opportunities and challenges for improved environmental management in sports, followed by speakers on behalf of the University of Lisbon, as well as speakers from the world of sports, namely athletics, with their good practices.
As the Green Sports Hub project is entering its last coupe of months before it ends in December, with big aspirations and ambitions to become an independent and self-sustaining platform, a series of workshops and dissemination events are taking place, hosted by the project’s partners. The ultimate goal of the Hub is to become a place which would serve as a place where practitioners, sport organisations academia and other stakeholders could come to work together on improving the environmental management in sports.
What concerns ACCESS, this event will be a good opportunity to highlight the objectives and the principles, the project is built upon. The fact that the project has FC Porto as a project partner will certainly draw some attention among the Portuguese audience and increase the potential for a successful community outreach and replication of the ACCESS results in Portugal.
