Last week on the 2nd and 3rd of February, 2017 at the impeccable Restoran Amor in Kocani Macedonia, Summer Work and Travel (SWT) Alumni Macedonia had the pleasure of hosting an Erasmus+ “Sport for All” Roundtable. The goal of the 2-day event was to discuss, brainstorm, and develop viable methods to increase sports capacities in Kochani. Participants came from all sectors and backgrounds with the single intention of working together to help their community. Lively discussion took place over the two days and participants were able to network with individuals who they may not have come into regular contact. As a capstone of the event, participants in groups focused their skills and knowledge in five relevant subtopics.
As the main outcomes of this event were the 5 project ideas that can help improve the sport capacity in Kochani:
– EVS project that will make young Europeans do a volunteer work with the local association of scouts
– Sports and Multiculturalism
– Alternative Financing for popular sport Clubs

This event was one part of the Erasmus+ funded project, Sport for All, which is composed of 10 organizations from 8 countries. The main goal of this activity is to raise the public institutions awareness of sport and physical activities as an effective instrument for improving the social capital of the EU.
