Idea pitch

With the help os the sport, like a „gate activity”, we will involve and motivate the young persons and their family of the surrounding small settlements, that let a part be taken in the community life actively. We will develop the active citizenry and democracy, stability, providing a motivation and long-term aims to the target group.

Where will your project idea take place?

Hungary, Southern Transdanubia, Baranya county, Siklós city and Siklósnagyfalu village

What is the local challenge?

With the project, we want to help cumulatively disadvantaged youth and children, who living in the surrounding villages of our headquarters. There are countless poor families in the Southern Transdanubia region, for whom "free is expensive" too. There are countless talented children living in poverty in the villages who have few opportunities in life. Sport is an activity and communication channel through which we can open the door to community development, democracy and active citizenship. We want to help them by providing a community space where they can gather, communicate and workout. Of course, youth with disabilities can do their rehabilitation preparation for free too. Our association transports everyone back and forth free of charge.

How does your idea strengthen democracy and active citizenship at a local and community level?

The aimlessness, embitterment, unmotivated are typical among the underprivileged population. We create the active citizenry's bases with the help of the sport: resoluteness, stability, perseverance and the healthy self-evaluation.
The civil society's existence was not so free always, than our days. Protection of our interests and the expression of our values, like a community, we can represent more effectively. The aim of the project to persuade the citizens into debates (on a local and union level) from the actual questions of the union political timetable.
Through the programs we impart knowledge, we built the interest the local and union topics, with the help of heterogeneous group occupations, where with a different view, opinion we encourage people to the disputation of more topics.

Who are you doing it for?

Our project speaks to the young persons with a underprivileged, low activity and ones availing themselves of a deficiency. We activate the target group with the help of the sport, the rehabilitation and free gym and we broaden their scope out. Many families live on the surrounding small settlements, who are poor, not active and low their ability to enforce interest. The sport may show a road to these people_nation. They may get to know the active citizenry and democracy through the sport. We help the young persons in being allowed to achieve their aim by way of the sport. Let it be fighting sport, football, bodybuilding, or only a plain hobby sport.
Our goal is to make youth successful through sport and thereby prove that they too can make their dreams come true.

How do you plan to get there?

Our aims on the directed socialisation process developed in the course of the occupations, social participation, the forming of the rights and obligations and his definition, we will reach it concerned through the mutual support, like this the target group/a community's members – the democracy and along the active citizenry's values - those tasks, set aims are accomplished, that you do not dare till now or they did not have an opportunity for him.

How does your initiative contribute to strengthening democracy in Europe?

It is necessary in European Union's democracy in order for the integrational decision making and cheque to be founded on the wide civic participation. In Europe Parlament the union citizens' representation simply indirectly assured, just because of this important, that let the European citizens receive an even bigger role in the decision making, the definition of the common priorities, to which onto a uniform approach manner and we need common norms. We contribute the processing of topics like that and the passing of related informations to this, like:
• European Union's function and his story
• European Union's institutions and his communication
• Electoral system and multi-party
• The government's function
• Political participation
• Political culture
• Civil franchises

What is your story?

For me important this project, because I come from here, and I know it well, what these people going through. I know it well what they need and what I would have needed when I was a child. It knows it, who came from among them, has need only apparently and experienced the deprivation and the misery. I like it always would be if they help I know it so how well will set about them if we give a road or a motivation to these people. I say this in such a way that I am a multiple Hungarian champion concerned lying pressing European champion. I think that I saw Europe in the course of my competitions how different the local life. We would like to broaden the optic range of these people_nation because of this and to announce with them, that not Hungary exists only.
