BaskEUball Project – Basket Change Maker: Play, Include, and Educate

The “Basket Change Maker: Play, Include, and Educate” (BaskEUball) objective is to respond to
the vulnerability and social exclusion situation of children aged 6 to 12 who study in multicultural
schools in Europe.
The project aims to use basketball as a powerful tool to promote inclusion and democratic
values as the practice of sport becomes a generator of opportunities for everyone, not just from
the sport but also for children’s academic, personal and collective development. In other words,
curricular learning and the development of life skills for all children.
In this sense, the project will implement active methods that connect the practice of sports and
the creative use of art and technology to develop lifelong learning and skills for both children
and teachers, as well as the entire educational community involved in the project.
The project involves partners from three different countries where basketball is strongly rooted
(Spain, Lithuania and Greece); for example, in Lithuania, it is considered a “second religion”. In
each country, a school, a basketball club, and a university (or educational organisation) are
involved as partners.
Each year, the project will select a group of girls and boys from vulnerable communities,
integrate them into different basketball teams (inclusion) and provide them with training
following the school project. It’s about working together in school and extracurricular basketball
to provide integral education in and out of school hours. It’s about getting basketball into school
and, at the same time, getting school into extracurricular activities. It’s all about educating the
In this process, a European network of children and educators will be created by using the
Internet and ICT not only to interconnect and engage in cultural exchanges but also to co-create
The project will involve at least 3250 children and 275 educators. The results will include a
program of extracurricular activities, a guide to integrating these activities into the school
curriculum, training materials and methods for teachers and coaches, and a report explaining
the know-how for replication.

Podcast as a tool to promote peace and democracy

Podcast can be a tool for promoting 𝗽𝗲𝗮𝗰𝗲 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗱𝗲𝗺𝗼𝗰𝗿𝗮𝗰𝘆 – Second Transnational Meeting in Napoli, Italy for the PODJECT initiative!

From 𝟮𝟱 to 𝟮𝟴, September 2023, we had our second meeting in Napoli, hosted by our beloved partners Twoplustwo together with our partners Power Group from Palestine, Sciara Progetti from Italy, IDare from Jordan and Lebanese Development Network (LDN) from Lebanon.The creation of Podcasts is a passion for us in Action Synergy.

We believe that it is a very strong tool in order to enable the youth to express their own voices. That is why we had the idea to create a project that will enable young people on how to create their own podcasts from the concept, the technical part and its promotion.

We are now in the preparatory phase of the project, preparing the training materials which will be learning podcasts.

Imagine that for a minute: Listening to podcasts in order to learn how to create podcasts. In the second year of the project, we will host 12 webinars, 2 faces to face trainings and an e-learning course, in order to support young people in this journey. Together with that, we will create our own podcast platform , where young people can upload their own creations.

We are very excited for this project, and we cannot hide it!

Logistics in the City of Lights

Paris, the City of Lights is also a city in the heart of the modern transportation and logistics. Action Synergy visited AFT, one of the leading organisations supporting transportation and logistics in France which is also a partner in the DIGINILOGS project.

In these 3 days the partners of the DIGINILOGS project were able to design the content of the MOOC in the field of Digitalisation of Logistics which is going to be available for anyone interested from mid-September 2023.

We had also the chance to visit the Prologis warehouse, the wolrd’s first certified carbon neutral warehouse.

DIGINILOGS is a project coordinared by the Spanish Vocational Organisation CIFPA.
