United through Urban Movement

About United through Urban Movement – UUM

The project and its name encompass and promote the idea of social inclusion and integration through the word “united” and aim to transfer the idea that physical activity unites us all. “Urban movement” is related to urban sports, but the term “movement” is broader and accessible; it is something we do every day. “Movement” also represents the social movement of the participants, staff, volunteers, and individuals in the broader society. The word “through” aims to show that through sport we can reach mobility, become inclusive, and spread the word about the benefits of volunteerism. This resonates with the idea of “education through sport” in our view.

Main objectives:

  • Promote mobility, social inclusion, and sport-based education for youth from disadvantaged backgrounds
  • Provide relevant volunteer work experience for disadvantaged youth through involving them in the organisation of small-scale, urban sport-based events
  • Give and include the target group in personal skills development workshops centred around employability
  • Promote the selected urban sports (Parkour, Street workout, 3×3 Streetball) as “accessible for all” and fun ways of doing physical activity/sport
  • To raise awareness of the benefits of movement/physical activity, physiological and social, including the positive impact it can have on mental well-being as well
  • Prepare and share an editable, online database with “good practices”, which will be used to realise the small-scale urban sport festival
  • Educational YouTube channel highlighting the basics of the Parkour, 3×3 Streetball and Street workout/Calisthenics
