Representatives of project partners Be(ach) Volunteer, Be(ach) Fair! (VOLFAIR) met for the final working meeting on December 3rd , at the Sports Association of the City of Zagreb, to wrap up and discuss the final activities regarding the project.
The main VOLFAIR project goals are to improve the volunteer policy and enlarge the volunteer satisfaction at beach handball tournaments in Europe, to exchange experiences and good practices of the event organisers and promotes the values of fair play.
The meeting started with a presentation of the project results, involving the final survey results, upon which, the project partners discussed how to keep empowering and involving volunteers in Beach Handball, sharing personal best practice experiences.
In duration of two years, the project participants held numerous working meetings, promoted fair play and volunteering at more than ten top-level beach handball tournaments organized in the project's partner countries, including the European University Games held in Poland in 2022. During those two years, surveys with tournament participants related to the needs of volunteers during the organization of large events were collected.
