About the project

What is a project "SONKEI - Respect in Sport, Respect in Life"?


The theme of the project "SONKEI - Respect in Sport, Respect in Life" is violence, discrimination and intolerance in sport. The aim and goal is to raise awareness among coaches, teachers and youth about violence and discrimination in sports. The latter is still not addressed to a sufficiently large extent in the wider society. And in the real sports ecosystem, the topic of violence, discrimination and intolerance is practically taboo.


As part of the project, we will prepare various educational content and tools, as well as the main actors in physical education, and empower children and young people with the knowledge of how to react in the event that they perceive violence or are the victims of violence themselves.

Athletes - ambassadors of non-violence in sports and in general, will help us spread project activities, products and values.

The project is co-financed by the Erasmus+ program of the European Union. The project manager, ŠPORTNO DRUŠTVO GIB, invited organizations from Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Italy, Bulgaria, Romania, Turkey, and Portugal to join the project consortium.
