Sport & Minor Migrants, supporting the inclusion of young Swiss migrants
A new project, Sport & Migrants Mineurs, was launched to use sports for inclusion and integration among young migrants in Switzerland.
On World Refugee Day on 20 June 2019, a group of professionals and sports enthusiasts launched Sport and Minor Migrants (SMM). The project aims to offer initiations and training to young migrants in different sports, including winter sports such as curling or cross-country skiing. This citizen-led project, inspired by the values conveyed by the Youth Olympic Games (YOG), is one of the first to claim to be part of the Spirit of Lausanne 2020, a new YOG sub-brand which connects youth initiatives that are in line with the vision of this event.
