HALT project launches resource tools
The Halting Harassment and Abuse in Sports using Learning Technologies (HALT) project partners are proud to present the promo video of the project, as well as the main resource tools: games, whistleblowing tool and community of practice.
These tools have been developed as part of the three-year project, which looks to raise awareness of good practices in combating violence and tackling racism, discrimination and intolerance in sport. The material is addressing different types of abuse and harassment, including emotional, physical, sexual and neglect.
Although the release has been done, the tools will now be tested and especially enhanced with the content. Project partners therefore met, virtually on November 24, to evaluate the progress and set the tasks for the upcoming period.
The project is co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union, and is coordinated by the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (GRE), partnering with the European University Cyprus (CYP), Portuguese Union of Professional Football Players (POR), Spanish Women Futsal Players Association (ESP), Salzburg Sports Association (AUT), Hellenic Gymnastics Federation (GRE) and the EUSA Institute (SLO).
EUSA recognises the importance of safeguarding in sport, working towards ensuring a safe and positive experience for all participants. Apart of working on projects, a set of related policies have been developed and updated, namely the Code of Conduct and Incident Policy. These documents have been presented earlier in November are now in consultation with our members.
