Press event for the launch of the Sacree project - Rome, 17 October 2022

Sport and Autism, from a scientific diagnosis to the CREation of a pedagogical European model

Monday 17 October 2022 from 5 PM to 6 PM at the offices of SS Romulea, via Farsalo 21 - 00183 ROME the partners of Sacree project are arranging a press event. The event will be in Italian with English-Italian translation.

The European partners of Sacree will present this new European project, including the context, objectives and future results. There will be time for questions from the public.

The Sacree program aims at improving the daily lives of autistic people by promoting the inclusive practice of sport activities. Running for 36 months, until 2025, the project is funded by the European Commission’s Erasmus+ Sport Program.

Sacree targets a better inclusion of autistic people in sport activities of any discipline and the society in general, by fostering their access to physical activity and sporting contexts, adapted to their needs through sustainable solutions. The project will contribute to creating an inclusive ecosystem that can be replicated everywhere in Europe. It also aims to raise awareness among European sport clubs, their staff and practitioners, as well as other professionals, researchers and involved stakeholders. By bringing together actors from the world of autism, sport, and science, Sacree project intends to co-construct an evidence-based pedagogical model, built on a scientific comparative study and field-tests carried out in different environments and countries.

The event will be also live streamed on
