In 2018, Playlab organised the first edition of its support programme dedicated to the social inclusion of refugees through sport. The objective of this programme, co-financed by the European Commission and the City of Paris, was to support the development of 7 innovative projects from 7 European countries.
Adolescence represents the period of abandonment of sports activities for young girls (-45%) and young boys (-35%). Period of puberty, it is also the moment of the construction of brilliant representations in the young people. The international organization PLAY organizes a concrete solution for a new sport practice adapted to gender diversity.
Promoting social inclusion of refugees and asylum seekers through sport : this is the challenge of this programme. Carried by the Playlab over a period of 3 years, it began in Janary 2020 and will end in December 2022. This programme is financed by the European Commission and the Fondation SUEZ.
