GAP – Women Gender Actions to increase Women’s Participation in Sports


The GAP project, which started mid-June and is led by the Unió de Federacions Esportives de Catalunya (UFEC) has the aim to promote women’s participation in sport in order to increase the number of women’s federation licenses while also promoting inclusive and sustainable sport.


The project is aimed at adult women aged 18-50 focused on sport organisations, federations, clubs and public authorities, including from vulnerable groups.


Training (online to drive digitalisation in the industry) and tools to further good practices will be developed and offered as well as effective communication strategies. Inclusive and sustainable gender-parity sport events will be set up to raise awareness, sensitise and stimulate women’s involvement in sport.


The project partners include project lead UFEC (Spain), ICSSPE (Germany), Sport and Citizenship (France), International Sport and Culture Association (Denmark), European Non-Governmental Sports Organisation (Sweden), Maieutica – Cooperativa de Ensino Superior C.R.L. (Portugal), European Table Tennis Union (Luxembourg), MSV Asd Margherita Sport e Vita (Italy), Catalan Federation of Underwater Activities (Spain) and Wakatobi (Spain). The Italian Basketball Federation is included as collaborator in the project.


ICSSPE will be conducting a literature review and develop a stakeholder mapping. The project will run from mid-2022 to mid-2025.
