Increasing the participation of refugees in local sports activities is a fundamental way to help tackle the global refugee crisis and help thousands of refugees around the world integrate into their new communities and environments. Using sport as a tool for inclusion, coaches have a powerful way to help change people’s lives for the better.

In this webinar we will examine how coaches can organise sports sessions for refugees. The webinar will provide guidance and advice on how to prepare coaching sessions, what to consider, how coaching refugees differs from coaching sports sessions for local people and what best practices or cultural differences to keep in mind when working with refugees.

Celebrated in Padua, the STEADY Action Week was part of the EU Week of Sport, focusing on informal physical activities with refugee women and children. The event highlighted the power of sport as a universal language, capable of breaking down barriers and fostering inclusion.

Through various sports and activities, participants experienced joy, camaraderie, and a sense of achievement, emphasising the role of sport in building inclusive communities.
