Cfi: Gaming Application - Call for interest - deadline 25th of April

The EGLSF has been granted funds from the European Union for a project “Preventing & Fighting Homophobic Violence & Intolerance in Sport – Pride in Sport”. EGLSF's bid includes the programming of a Anti-Discrimination Gaming Application for young people. The aim of the application is to raise awareness and understanding of discrimination such as homophobia, transphobia, racism, sexism and discrimination against disabled people in sport and to give all young people the tools with which to challenge such discrimination where they encounter it. Ultimately, it is intended that the product will be available online for use by organisations working with young people, such as schools and youth centres. The application must appeal to young people, be current and potentially to remain relevant for at least three years (with future updates to be negotiated independently of this call).

The budget allocated in the EGLSF bid amounts to 50,000 of which 20% is to be co-financed by EGLSFs own funds.
