SportEYE Project Meeting at PLAY International in Paris

On March 14th and 15th, SportEYE project partners gathered at the office of PLAY INTERNATIONAL located in Saint Ouen, Paris, to discuss the latest findings and further steps regarding the promotion of sustainable practices in sports organisations.

Day 1

Fundación Real Betis Balompié joining SportEYE

On March 14th, the SportEYE consortium officially welcomed Fundación Real Betis Balompié to the project. The Foundation will be an integral part of the educational package that is created as part of the SportEYE project and thus help in promoting sustainable practices in sports organisations.

Every year, Fundación Real Betis supports more than 300 organisations that work in the social or environmental sector, mainly in Seville and Andalusia. Each Season, the Foundation addresses a long list of initiatives to continue their work to improve social, economic and environmental factors within the community, being aware that social responsibility is increasingly important in any type of organisation, but much more so in a club like Real Betis Balompié, where the value of feelings and emotions are always present.

Progress of the Educational Content (WP3)

PLAY International hosted brainstorm session regarding the content of the educational package to guarantee its applicability and relevance to sport organisations.

The consortium is looking forward to reaching out to sport organisations later in the year in order to start educating about integrating SDGs in the daily workings among organisational staff such as managers and also sport coaches. 

Visit of Paris2024 Legacy and Engagement Forum

SportEYE partners had the opportunity to visit the Paris2024 Forum. It was a great opportunity to find out more about the upcoming mega event and its sustainable effect on the city of Paris, its inhabitants, the environment and wider society in general. More specifically, project partners had the opportunity to meet up with the director of sustainability of the Paris Olympics and Paralympics. Thus, they were able to gain valuable insights which can be implemented into the educational package.

Day 2

Management and coordination (WP1)

On Friday, 15th of March 2024, the project partners discussed pending issues, updates regarding different work packages and summary of the done work so far. Additionally the current finance overview has been checked by project partners to make sure that everything continues to run smoothly. 

Dissemination (WP5)

Furthermore, the newsletter publication and use of different social media channels have been discussed.

Next Steps

The meeting concluded with discussion about scheduling the next partner meeting, which will take place in Milan, Italy, later this year.

The third SportEYE meeting proofed the commitment, collaboration and dedication of project partners towards the project’s goals and objectives.
