The TETRIS project comes to fill in an important gap in the way sports education is delivered nowadays, as it is expected to tackle long term perceptions regarding the prevention and combating of gender-based violence in the sport sector, and in turn the role of young athletes in finding a voice vis-à-vis the “power” and “strength” of coaches within and outside the educational system. In more detail, the proposed action aims at: promoting integrity and cooperation in the field of sport, by developing relevant e-learning tools and resources for educational staff and delivering tailor-made capacity building programmes, as well as promoting values in sport via communication and awareness-raising activities. In order to meet the above-mentioned objectives and targets, the project will reach out to key actors and educators in the sports sector, as well as students and their parents, so as to convey a strong message of intolerance of violence in sport.
