There is an important presence of traditional games within the European Community, each with its own history, tradition, evolution, rules, dating back to centuries. However, though these games are still played in local communities -even if in very limited geographical perimeters- there is often a lack of codes and regulatory sources that give them authority and dignity. Firstly, the lack of an appropriate transcription of these games is therefore dangerous, as it can lead to their dispersion and thus their abandonment and disappearance: a loss from a cultural, historical, and sporting perspective for the entire community. Secondly, the lack of regulation both at local, regional and national level, prevents also local communities to exploit TSG as an opportunity to grow and develop from a socio -economic perspective.
Therefore, "Remote remembrances to foster the future: Traditional Sport and Games potential - REMIND" aims at creating new opportunities, in the fields of education, culture, social and economic growth using Tradition Games (TG) as a flywheel.
With this premise, the project foresees to achieve these specific objectives:
Objective 1: To perform comparative research on the needs of the grassroots sport, socio-cultural organizations’ about the skills needed to exploit TSG as a tool to promote regional socio-economic development and on the untracked TSG at EU level that could be used as a flywheel to promote socio-economic regional development
Objective 2: To provide grassroots sport, socio-cultural associations staff members, with tools and innovative training materials containing a holistic approach applied to TSG to promote socio-economic regional development and foster the practice of physical activity among different target groups.
Objective 3: To create a network of grassroots sport, socio-cultural organizations at European level
