On June 10th in Brussels, IHF asbl joined the “41e Tournoi Europeen de Mini-Basket” in order to disseminate activities and results of the “Anti-doping GREEN SEAL” – a two-year Project implemented by a Consortium of 6 Partners from 6 European countries (Belgium, Croatia, Italy, Poland, Spain and United Kingdom), that addresses the issue of doping in recreational Sports environment and will develop comprehensive preventive actions to tackle doping use in recreational Sports among youngsters.
The targeted audience came from 8 different European countries such as Belgium, Croatia, Italy, Latvia, Netherlands, Poland, Spain.
The Project aims at spread the awareness of the negative implications of doping in recreational sports. As such, ANTIDOPING Green Seal fills a gap as most anti-doping campaigns and activities are often targeted at athletes involved in professional and competitive sports.
The Project will develop an Antidoping Ethical Code to be adopted across recreational sports organisations across Europe to prevent unhealthy behaviours of non-professional athletes. The main target group of the Project is represented by young people in recreational sport settings.
ANTIDOPING Green Seal started in January of 2018 and will be implemented over a period of 24 months with activities involving grassroots sports organisations in all of the countries represented in the Consortium.
