Partners of the European project “Play to Train”, coordinated by OPES Italia, gathered in Rome to establish the final guidelines for the upcoming project. The partners, which include OPES Italia (Italy), Associations Academy Rudi Hiti (Slovenia), and Champion Factory (Bulgaria) met at the Italian National Olympic Committee’s H-Palace on April 5th with the aim to identify the next steps and enhance the project impact amongst the communities.
What will be next?
Play to Train is looking to enhance women’s participation in coaching addressing the deeply-rooted gender gap that, in Europe, has been fostered for decades. The meeting started with each organization presenting themselves and the work they have completed in the past.
Later in the day, partners worked on defining the next steps, creating a timeline, and delegating a division of tasks. Members of the meeting all pitched ideas for the precautionary measures to finding suitable candidates to implement Play to Train. Concerning next steps, after a training course that will be held in Bulgaria in September, the following months will see participants implementing pilot activities in their national contexts of the three countries. Feedbacks from the pilot activities will be collected in Slovenia during January of 2020. The final result of the project will be shared in Rome of May 2020.
