Igorre Council and GaituzSport will be presenting the “Inclusive programme via Sport in Igorre” at the Casa de Cultura de Igorre, at 7:30pm on 20th September.
Sport becomes a valuable social inclusion tool when both the material and personal environment are prepared for the same. With this in mind, Igorre Council and GaituzSport have been working together for a year carrying out exhaustive analysis and diagnosis of the municipal sports offer. This has resulted in critical conclusions and essential recommendations acting as basis to improve the municipal sports offer. These actions are part of the Inclusive Municipal Programme, whose main purpose is to foster physical activity and sports among everybody guaranteeing equal conditions for each and every one.
Doing Physical Activity and Sport is both a right and an essential health factor to which everyone should have access regardless of age, gender, capacity or socio-economic condition. Through this Programme, Igorre Council undertakes to make sport a real opportunity for everyone fostering accessibility, inclusion and equality in the town. Here at GaituzSport we should like to thank Igorre Council for their awareness and effort in taking another step forward towards inclusion.
