During the event the participants were acquainted with the activities of the Back2Track project coordinated by the Bulgarian sports development association, which aims at analyzing the differences and similarities that sports clubs have in their approach to professional and mass sport as well as in an innovative approach to include disadvantaged children in sport and physical activity. The project aims to find a way to create the practical skills and knowledge in participating organizations how to manage sports programs for mass sports, along with sports programs for professional athletes. In May 2019 Bulgaria hosted a children's athletics contest involving children from Croatia and Belgium and the main organizer of the event was the KLASA Athletics Club, a partner in the Back2Track project co-funded under the Erasmus +. Participants also received information on the HEPOSI project, which is cooperation between non-governmental organizations from Europe and Latin America to address the challenge of promoting healthy physical activity and eating habits among young people through non-formal education. During the activities, the “A Path to TranSportAction" (APTSA) project was presented. It is a projcet involving 5 organizations - three from Europe (Bulgaria, Croatia and Italy) and two from Latin America (Brazil and Peru). The aim of the project is to increase the capacity of youth organizations from the countries concerned to apply sport in combination with innovative informal methods and approaches to combat gender discrimination. With this project, the organizers hope to contribute to the reduction of sexism and stereotypes and contribute to gender equality in the poor provincial regions of Europe and Latin America.
