ABOUT THE PROJECT
Every year, many rural areas in Europe are being desolated and forgotten. Many media networks confirm a depopulation risk in these areas. Lack of access to education, physical education, transports or jobs are the main reasons why people are going to big cities to continue their lives. The chances in big cities vs rural areas are quite evident. Analysis in many journals take a look at rural areas where youngsters mainly leave the studies, education and training before than youngsters from big cities. Poverty and social exclusion are increasing in these areas, which need to be recovered. Rural areas suffered a social and demographic impact by immigrants, making a good contribution in reducing depopulation. Nonetheless, rural areas are still in a minority and in disadvantaged groups.
One of the keys is the social inclusion among the youngsters in these communities, this new generation is coming and our future is in their hands. An aim for these guys is raising awareness of that situation, to be more visible and motivate for their close future. Second key and the main therapy for that is the sport, how sport can involve the people in a small community. Fair play and inclusion through the sport in rural areas. Sport can show that everybody has equal opportunities in a small area. Physical education is not only a physic activity, it goes further, it is a psychic activity, a learning to learn, it involves everybody and the results obtained are very remarkable.
