(Re)imagining sport in Lithuania: Young people’s promotion of safe sporting spaces

Project Details


Despite increasing attention on safe sport, sports organisations have been slow to involve young people in developments. Additionally, little is known about young peoples’ understandings of safe sport. This project encourages young peoples' active involvement in promoting positive sport environments in their nation and protecting themselves (and others) from harmful sport practices. 17 Lithuanian university students from sport-related degrees will take part in one week of workshops about safe sport and create and disseminate related campaigns to sports clubs. An empirical study running alongside the project will explore their perceptions of the safe sport issues relevant to them in their country and their experiences of disseminating the first youth-led campaign on safe sport in Lithuania.
