Project partners are: Swedish Riksidrottsförbundet (Confederation of Sports of Sweden), Latvijas Sporta Federáciju Padome (Union of Federations of Latvia), the International Council of Sport and Physical Education (ICSSPE, Germany), the City Council of Gondomar (Portugal), the Ministry of Culture and Sport of the Hellenic Republic of Greece, the French ‘think tank’ Sport and Citizenship, and the University of Córdoba,Spain.
