TACKLING DOPING AT GRASSROOTS LEVEL: IHF Hosts ANTIDOPING GREEN SEAL Multiplier Event In BRUSSELS
On April 8 in Brussels, IHF hosted ANTIDOPING Green Seal Multiplier Event. The project is funded by the Erasmus Plus Programme, Key Action Sport and brings together 6 partners from Belgium, Croatia, Italy, Poland, Spain and the UK.
The Project aims at enhancing understanding and awareness of the negative implications of doping in recreational sports. As such, ANTIDOPING Green Seal fills a gap as most antidoping 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.
The Multiplier Event presented the results of the project, its Intellectual Outputs and hosted panelists from the National Antidoping Agencies of Spain and Belgium together with representatives of local and international sport associations, joint in a discussion on the importance of fighting doping at grassroots level and discovering the results of the Antidoping GREEN SEAL project.
Specifically, the participants discussed the perspective of sports clubs and associations and the role of European Multisport Club Association in fighting doping at European level.
