Inclusive and inspiring sports, accessible for all!
Those are a few of the keywords for the INTERACT project, leaded by TAFISA and in which WMF is an active partner. On November 9 and 10 it was time for a project meeting in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. WMF was represented in person by Maarit Larinen from
Sweden and the president of WMF, Dr. Gerhard Zimmerman from Germany. Verners Kirss from Latvia took part online.
On the agenda were several exciting topics. First and foremost the upcoming launch of the project website as well as a press event early next year. The respective links will be posted on our social media channels and on our webpage. Other topics discussed included the building of a toolkit for use by international sports organisations. The toolkit will help in the inclusion of various target groups in line with the project's goals. The partner organisations has done a thorough job and we hope you all are as excited to see the final products as we are.
But what is a project meeting without networking and socialising? After the first day's discussions and dinner it was time to try frisbee - or more specifically the sport of ultimate. Eintracht Frankfurt Ultimate offered two sweaty hours of fun - and a few close calls with the occasional rogue frisbee! All participants got two frisbees to bring home and to have a chance to practise with them. The project meeting in Frankfurt showed the importance of meeting in person and all participants were glad that it finally happend. Now everybody is full of energy to continue to work on their assigned intellectual outputs. The next physical meeting will take place in Leipzig in spring 2022, but before that we will update you on the launch of the project website and cover the press event in January.
