SWOST – Sport without stereotypes – is an Erasmus+ KA2 project aimed at changing Europe’s sport organisations through the challenge of gender stereotyping within sport organizations. The project addresses in particular a cross-sectorial cooperation, allowing for greater synergies across all fields of actions concerning sport organizations, with a special focus on access to rights, autonomy, participation.
SWOST main goal is to promote equal access and participation for women and men at all levels and in all fields of sport, and in particular, to encourage and increase the access and the participation of male and female in sport typically categorized like “gender based sport”, by challenging gender stereotypes and any discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.
This objective will be reached through the creation of a set of online tools aimed at providing self-assessment and guidance for clubs and sport associations to improve their policies and awareness.
These tools will enable sport association to measure progress in tackling the effects that gender stereotyping still has on women, men and LGBTQI athletes, young people and families, in relation with sport practice and clubs sporting choices.
