ICSS Europe will coordinate its first-ever EU project within the framework of Save the Dream initiative established by the ICSS with the support of Ooredoo as Technology Partner, becoming a global movement that aims to promote and protect the values and integrity of sport.

The CrosSport project's official launch took place during a project kick-off session held during the European Week of Sport in Lisbon, hosted by the National Olympic Committee of Portugal.

The project kick-off session brought together project partners along with relevant international and national institutions such as the International Organization for Migration and the Portuguese Institute for Sport and Youth, and a“refugees-led sharing talk”, which gathers four testimonies representing the refugee's communities identified by project partners.

The project comes in response to today's current and dramatic events stressing, more than ever, the need to adopt innovative measures and CrosSport's pioneering approach aimed at exploring new avenues for reception, inclusion and integration of refugees in our societies by using the power of sport.
