CooL- Cooperative Learning through Sports and Outdoor Activities is a project designed to contribute to the overall quality of youth work at local, national and European level by equipping group of youth workers and sport leaders from six European countries with advanced knowledge and skills on how to use the method of cooperative learning in youth work through sports and outdoor activities. They will learn how to combine educational methods used in sports /physical education with various methods used in non-formal education with young people, as well as how to use cooperative learning, sports and outdoor activities as efficient tools in talkling about discrimination, promotion of active participation, social inclusion, critical thinking and prevention of violent extremism / radicalization of youth.

The first part of the project was organized in Finland during May 2018, including young people interested in sports coming from Bosnia, Italy, Sweden, Finland, Macedonia  and Ukraine.
