PROJECT ORIENT is an Erasmus+ funded project aiming at encouraging social inclusion and equal opportunities in sport.
The project is an initiative of seven organisations from five different European countries (Italy, Czech Republic, Latvia, Slovenia and Spain,) active in the fields of sport and social services, at various levels.
To foster ORIENT’s equal opportunities objective, partners organise TrailO activities, as an inclusive educational tool able to engage disable and able-bodies in the same event, with the same possibilities to win. In three years (2020-2022), ORIENT partners will develop tools to facilitate the organisation of TrailO grassroots events involving able and disabled athletes. They will participate in trail orienteering events and seminars across Europe, along with transnational partners who will share their organisational and operational expertise.
Seven European organisations met in Rome, at the Head Office of the CONI, to launch 'ORIENT', an international social inclusion project funded by the European Union.
