An online meeting has taken place on June 24th through Google Meet between the partners of the Sport Project “i-Protect – Developing a European platform for the protection of children in Sport” in order to share last news about the end of this important project.
The new i-Protect in Sport platform will offer various learning modules that will serve as a tool for empowerment and prevention against violence, neglect, harassment and abuse of children in the context of sport and physical activities.
Through the e-learning modules, sports clubs and organizations will be supported to minimize the risk of minors suffering violence of any kind and will also have the opportunity to obtain the “I-protect Badge”
The online Platforms in four languages are almost ready and the partners are already working on the Final Report of this amazing project.
Unfortunately, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Final Conference that should have been held in Madrid to launch the i-Protect Platform in English, Spanish, Italian and French, will not take place as it was planned. This is why
there are still no security conditions to be able to organize large events with many participants.
CEIPES’ staff together with the representatives of Fundación Deporte Joven (Spain), the Spanish High Council for Sport, the French Ministry of Sport, the Luxemburg Ministry of Sport, Safe Sport International (UK) and the Thomas More University College (Belgium), have met online to discuss about suggestions and proposals about alternatives to the Final Conference Celebration. All of them will present a list of suggestions in order to launch the i-Protect platform.
Providing a healthy and safe environment in which children can grow and develop must be the highest priority for any sport organization and institution.
By becoming an i-Protect club, a sport club will be recognized as an organization concerned with the welfare of the children and their physical and psychological development in addition to their sporting development.
