Sport with no borders (spobord) comes from the need to introduce activities in the curriculum that work on gender equality, equity and inclusion. The project aims at working equality of gender and social inclusion through sport. We will work on introducing new sports into the curriculum which aim at getting more students involved in sport and in practising it together with others, no matter the
gender they are. To work on this objective, we will have to work CLIL through different subjects which may vary from English and PE to Geography and Maths, creating a cross curricular activity on orienteering and introducing another sport from each country which is new for the others. We will
study the rules of these sports and try to modify them to make sports more equal.
The number of students participating directly in this project will be 144, 36 from each of the four schools involved in the project, with ages that go from 14 to 16. However, we expect that the Project will have an impact on the rest of the students in the different schools, at least in the long run when we introduce our results in the schools curriculum.
The activities that we propose for this project include studying and practising the different sports proposed by the different schools during the students' flows so that afterwards, they can analyse the different rules and adapt them to make them more equal. At the same time, they will work on orienteering and see that it is not only sport but it also needs of other subjects like Maths and Geography. All this work will have to be carried out in English and in mixed groups: sex and
nationality won't be a barrier. Students will have to create a logbook on their activities so that teachers and embassadors can afterwards use them to prepare the final tournament we will organise and to create cross curricular material on orienteering. Assignments will be set up before, during and
after the flows. Evaluation will be also carried out after them.
We expect that the project has an impact on students, families and teachers participating directly in the project: on students as it will change the way they understand the teaching-learning process, as they will be teaching their counterparts, it will open their minds to new cultures, it will improve their
English skills and their sense of responsibility. On the host families as they will have to share their lives with students from other countries. On teachers as their skills in organizing big projects and cooperating in an international context will improve as well as their English skills. But not only will theproject have an impact on people, but also on the institutions: at schools the European dimension will come forward, because the results of the exchange will be visible for all pupils and will become part of the curriculum of schools involved in the future. As for the local and regional authorities they can implement the sport offer in the areas our schools are set up, thus giving all the citizens the chance to practise new sports. At a European level, we intend to include the cross curricular materials created on orienteering, as well as the different sports in our curriculums and offer them to other schools interested, so that the material can reach as many people as possible using all digital possibilities.
We expect that, in the long run, the impact of the materials created in the project will stay in all the schools and the sports offer we will provide will remain in the schools and the areas where they are set up and extended to as many European schools as possible.
