BSDA is partner in PICS project
In the last years, European and international organizations have been deeply worked to describe the capabilities of sport as a tool to promote social changes and to encourage its use to achieve social developments. Yet, many improvements still need to be done. The main objective of the project Platform for Inclusion, Culture and Sport PICS consists in promoting voluntary activities in sport, together with social inclusion, equal opportunities and awareness of the importance of health-enhancing physical activity through increased participation in, and equal access to, sport for all.

In particular, the project aspires to achieve the following objectives:
· to increase the knowledge of participants about the concept of sport as a means to bring social developments;
· to encourage the exchange of good practices among the organizations involved;
· to raise awareness of the benefits of sport practice and physical activity;
· to teach participants how requalifying abandoned spaces;
· to improve the cooperation and partnership among organizations and institutions involved in the project.
Four main activities (a kick off meeting, two training courses and a conclusive ceremony) will be organized to achieve the above mentioned objectives.

The innovative aspects of the following project consist in the decision to offer participants the most comprehensive vision of the concept of sport. Besides, in this project, the EU added value will be created by promoting best practices in all participating Member States, by the free movement of persons involved in the project and by networking. Dissemination plan and measures will see the use of different instruments, in particular through internet and social networks, because that instruments give a lot of possibilities to arrive to the biggest audience.
