Registered applicants may submit proposals until 26 July.

1. Call for proposals: Exchanges and mobility in sport

Sport is a powerful tool, bringing people together at international, national, regional and local levels, and developing people-to-people contacts. Cooperation, partnerships and exchanges at grassroots level - inside the EU as well as with non-EU countries - can contribute to the development of new skills and positively influence societal changes. Moreover, sport organisations at all levels are by nature open to international cooperation.

This preparatory action aims to contribute to the efforts of sport organisations by supporting the learning mobility of their staff. Exchanges of people, ideas and good practices can be beneficial for the individuals, for their organisations and for sport and society as a whole.

2. Call for proposals: Promotion of European values through sport initiatives at the municipal level

This preparatory action proposes to support organisations that promote sport initiatives at local level with the goal of disseminating the positive values of sport.

Values lie in the core of the European Union since the EU project was built on the common values of its Member States. Article 2 of the Treaty on European Union (TEU) states that the Union is based on the values of respect for human dignity, freedom, democracy, equality, the rule of law and respect for human rights, including the rights of persons belonging to minorities. In this context, Europe needs more cohesive and inclusive societies in order to allow citizens to play an active role in democratic life. By providing a sense of belonging and a strong attachment to the principles and traditions which constitute the heart of open societies, sport can be a powerful tool for promoting common values.

Deadline for submissions is 26 July 2018.
