The #BeInclusive EU Sport Awards recognise and celebrate the achievements of sport organisations working with

  • ethnic minorities
  • refugees
  • people with disabilities
  • youth groups at risk
  • any other group that faces challenging social circumstances

They also cover gender equality and promote women’s participation to sport.

With its universal language, sport is a powerful tool to promote European values and peace. The awards aim to give visibility and support the dissemination of innovative ideas and best practices throughout Europe.

Apply now in one of 3 categories!

  1. Breaking barriers: rewards projects and organisations that give examples of good practice for overcoming obstacles to sport participation by empowering disadvantaged individuals
  2. Promoting gender equality in sport – Be Equal: rewards projects that recognise the added value of more gender equality in sport and carry out actions to close the gap between men and women in sport participation
  3. Sport for peace: highlights projects that put a special emphasis on the promotion of peace and European values through physical activity

The three winners (one in each category) will be announced at the #BeInclusive annual awards ceremony and will receive a prize of €10,000. The other finalists (second and third) in each category will receive a prize of €2,500.
