The European Commission #BeInclusive EU Sport Awards recognise organisations using the power of sport to increase social inclusion for disadvantaged groups. Sport is fun and brings people together. Sport is also based on fairness and respect, regardless of who you are and where you come from. This makes it a powerful tool for breaking barriers and building inclusive society.
