• About the Alice Milliat Foundation’s Erasmus+ supported project ‘European Network for Promotion of Women’s Sports’

    The Alice Milliat Foundation led the EU co-funded European Network for Promotion of Women’s Sports project and other partners of the project include Union Italiana Sport per Tutti (UISP, Italy), Netherlands Institute for Sport and Physical Activity, Foundation Sporting Clube de Portugal and International Sport and Culture Association.

    As part of the project, the partners organised two activities for women under the EU’s #BeActive European Week of Sport in 2016: the #BeActive Connected Run and the European Women’s Sport Day (Alice Milliat Challenge). The knowledge platform, in addition to these activation initiatives, ensures the project will continue to have an impact in the field of women in sport in years to come.

Women In Sport Platform

Have you ever wondered if there was one webpage dedicated entirely to initiatives that engage women in sport – a source of inspiration for physical activity providers to follow the best international examples in this field?

You’re in the right place! Welcome to the first international knowledge platform for Women in Sport.

It is an exciting time for women in sport, with women breaking barriers to compete in sports traditionally associated with men (football codes, cricket, boxing), attracting a new wave of media coverage (particularly in Australia and the UK) and becoming the first women to compete for their countries in Olympic sports such as boxing, ski jumping and even athletics.

We have gathered 60 examples from more than 12 countries that demonstrate tried-and-tested ways of promoting women’s participation at all levels of sport, particularly at the community level.

We selected these examples according to the following criteria: they are innovative initiatives in the community sport sector; they offer knowledge and practical experience organisations can learn from; they can be adapted to new settings; they are proven to be sustainable.

Browse our collection by clicking on the tab above and please feel free to contact us if you know of other good examples that we can add to our collection.

The Women in Sport platform has been created by the International Sport and Culture Association (ISCA) as part of the Alice Milliat Foundation’s Erasmus+ supported project ‘European Network for Promotion of Women’s Sports’.
