Green League – Sport Alliance for the Environment


Sport not only contributes to a healthier, fairer and more equal society but has also great potential in raising awareness and harnessing societal energy toward a cause. In this sense, sport can contribute to the environmental agenda, by encouraging the population to take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts (SDG 13), promoting healthy lives and well-being for all at all ages (SDG3), and finally by contributing to the global partnership for sustainable development (SDG17).

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, physical activity and sports practices have gradually shifted to outdoor activities due to the health risks connected to indoor activity, and the temporary closure of gyms and other sports facilities. This has brought more and more people closer to the natural environment as a safe place where physical activity can be performed while keeping a distance and enjoying nature, thus contributing to people’s wellbeing.

Green League will foster the role of sports professionals and amateur athletes in promoting sport as a tool to contribute to environmental sustainability, by making use of experiential learning to generate environmental awareness through sport.

The objective of the project is to enhance the link between sport and the environment through experiential learning, promoting outdoor physical activity as a tool to support environmental awareness, and encouraging sustainable practices in sport.

Through the project the partners will:

Build the capacity of sports professionals at the EU level to promote outdoor physical activity as a tool to educate people on environmental matters by involving them in the collaborative development of the Green League Model.

Design and deliver local sports events inspired by Nature’s Four elements, promoting sport’s practice while passing on a common environmental sense to young people, their families, and amateur athletes through experiential learning.

Actively engage sports clubs, young sports players, and amateur athletes by setting up local Green Leagues combining sports tournaments and environmental action.

The project will be implemented by 7 partners: CESIE (Italy), Vivi Sano Onlus (Italy), APGA (Slovenia), KMOP (Greece), EINURD (Island), CARDET (Cyprus) and Out of The Box International.

The project is co-financed by the ERASMUS-SPORT Programme of the European Commission.


Why Out of the Box International

The seemingly ever-lasting depression of European economies has shaken the very foundations of many European societies. The shear rate of unemployment in Europe and the omnipresent environmental crisis coupled with the often frustratingly slow process of decision making in the EU, are calling for civil society actors to step in and fill the void.

In the aftermath of the 2008. economic crisis, the apprehension of falling under the spell of apathy of economic depression across the continent has not been easy to shake off. However, pinpointing the culprits for the current state of affairs on any particular EU decision maker is not the answer. Nonetheless, the fact remains that the current approach to the economic and environmental crisis hasn’t yet shown the affected citizens the light at the end of the tunnel.

As representatives of the civil society we feel the need to make our voice heard in the midst of the current debate on economic crisis. Being a social enterprise we offer new and feasible ideas in education and community work, creative cross-sectorial cooperation among different actors and strong networking coalitions to turn these dire economic challenges into possibilities through social entrepreneurship initiatives which aim at benefiting wide range of citizens, particularly vulnerable groups and those affected by the economic crisis.

Social entrepreneurship is a simple concept that has been put into practice by civil society actors for the benefit of a specific social group or people, and this is precisely what we want: to create projects and initiatives with fresh ideas in different policies, educational programs or tools, support businesses, empower cultural initiatives and offer different solutions to individuals, corporate bodies, everybody who believe that we can have more Creative, Innovative and Cohesive Europe.
