New program of influencing younger generation to support their sport clubs and national teams with respect and good values. Local organization “Gentlments” want to influence way how to respect others during sport events in Serbia and Balkans.
Round table of the project “Developing a new generation of sport fans” was held on the 21st and 22nd of February 2020 in Belgrade . The project, in the form of small collaborative partnership co-funded by the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency with Football fans association „The Gentlemen“ –Serbia, A.S.T.E.R.I Association – Greece and Local football club “Lokomotiva” – Serbia will last until December 2020.
The partner countries had passed through a turbulent period of political and economic crises, which have had numerous negative impacts to whole society in terms of increased violence, nationalism, hatred, social exclusion, lack of appropriate education, etc. All these impacts were and, sadly, are still present, especially at the sport stadiums and within the young population. The idea of the project is to tackle this societal challenge by approaching the sensitive adolescent population which is most exposed to these negative influences and to try to initiate a change through educational trainings, raising awareness through revealing the causes of bad behaviors and exchanging experiences on good practices.
