Aims & Objectives
The aim of FAIRHAP project is to support and provide awareness to those who teach sports to children about basic human values, through innovative educational seminar approaches, in order to recognize and instill these values and joy through sports’ training to children.
The most important key is to engage children in sports with more ethical approaches, such as sportsmanship, fair play, social and moral values and presenting them with an alternative version to the competitive sports-oriented model that is dominant not only in sports today but also in everyday life.
The Objectives of the FAIRHAP project are to:
- Improve the understanding of Olympic fundamental values and their importance and the ability to apply and promote these concepts in all aspects of children’s lives.
- Give the opportunity to children through the participation in team sports, to increase their cognitive, emotional, and psychomotor activity, and to promote their self-awareness, sense of interdependence, cooperation and collegiality.
- Change the attitude of sport organizations and institutions not to focus in competition but in sports for all.
Mobilize people who have direct involvement in sports, education, schools, amateur clubs and mass sport bodies in order to broaden their minds through the gained knowledge about the importance of the promotion of the Olympic values.
