(GReFORM) - Good Governance enhancement through e-Learning for Sport Volunteer Board Members

UCLan Cyprus in collaboration with CEDAR has initiated the project GReForm. The latter is a transnational project aiming to increase the capabilities of volunteer Board Members in sport organisations by providing online education on good governance in sport (a certificate of successful completion will be provided).  The establishment of an online learning portal will allow volunteer Board Members of sports organisations – in their own time, and at no cost – to follow a series of educational courses explaining Good Governance at various levels.  In line with the relevant European policies and co-funded programmes in the field of sport, the project aims to create an academic online platform providing informal education taking into account the limited time availability of Volunteer Board Members. The identification, collection and sharing of good practices in the field of good governance in sport and the publication of the relevant e-book will be a useful tool for the sport organisations in implementing the good governance principles, e.g. Integrity, Accountability, Transparency, Democracy, Participation and Inclusivity.

Project Partners share the same belief that there is an increasing demand in providing accessible education on Good Governance in Sport that will boost and add value to the governance skills of volunteer Board Members and will eventually lead to the effective implementation of good governance principles in sport organisations at all levels.

The project’s partners come from various sectors and levels and in addition to their diverse expertise, and knowledge are expected to contribute positively to the main thematic areas and objectives of the project, i.e. Sports, Good Governance, Academia, Information Technology, e-learning and education. The project provides all the required tools and means for cross-sector cooperation and consultation among partners and key stakeholders in order to reach the goals and objectives of the project.
