EFDN is proud to receive funding from the Erasmus+ programme. Have a look at our EFDN Youth Exchanges and our Active Fans programme to get an insight into two Erasmus+ funded EFDN projects:
EFDN Youth Exchanges allow clubs to provide groups of young people from different countries to meet, live together and work on shared projects for short periods. Youth Exchanges take place outside the conventional environment of the participants. At an EFDN Exchange programme, participants take part in activities such as workshops, exercises, debates, role-plays, outdoor activities and more, that work towards shared themes of objectives. articipants also learn a lot about themselves. About their own character, good features, shortcomings, abilities, power and… what the effect of all this is on others. EFDN Youth Exchanges already have proven itself; there are examples of youngsters going home a completely different person. In the past years, Youth Exchanges took place among others in Lisbon, Arnhem, Tel Aviv , Rotterdam, Larnaca and Nijmegen.
The Active Fans programme, which will run from January 2018 until June 2020 aims to develop a new European standard and methodology that uses football as a tool to reach men and women from 35 years and older who would like to get physically active again, make lifestyle changes and improve their diets. The Erasmus+ Sport funded programme, coordinated by EFDN, is being delivered in collaboration with the 9 project partners; Fulham FC Foundation, Vitesse Betrokken, Bayer 04 Leverkusen, Rangers FC Foundation, Ferencváros TC, PSV Foundation, Feyenoord Rotterdam, KAA Gent and Valerenga Fotball. Within the Active Fans programme, the participants receive the opportunity to learn about nutrition, get physically active and start to feel the benefits of weight loss and increased energy.
