SAFE YOU- Strengthening the Anti-doping fight in Fitness and Exercise in Youth
Project ref. 579828-EPP-1-2016-2-EL-SPO-SCP



The project is based on the successful implementation of the
SAFE YOU project and aims to address the identified needs in
anti-doping education and involve participants from more diverse
backgrounds, to achieve a greater impact on target groups.
Overall, SAFE YOU+ incorporates contemporary and effective
learning pedagogies and technologies, such as case-based
learning; following the mindset of community-based intervention
to ensure a relevant impact of anti-doping education on the target
groups; and using well-evidenced communication technology
(crowdsourcing) to influence more effectively anti-doping policy-making
processes in youth amateur and grassroots sports.The objectives of the
project in youth amateur and grassroots sports are to: adopt a community-based holistic approach to anti-doping, including a wide and diverse group of end-users and relevant stakeholders in anti-doping education (i.e., emerging athletes, coaches and supporting staff, personal trainers, sport psychologists, as well as organisations supporting drug-free and health-oriented sports); use crowdsourcing to integrate public discourse and knowledge in anti-doping education and policy recommendations for better inclusive and legitimated anti-doping education; use ICT to provide easily accessible information on commonly used and emerging PAES in online/mobile app format; secure better decision-making and goal-setting among clean young athletes by teaching them how to resist inducement and avoid doping use; transform and evaluate ICT-based anti-doping education, using contemporary active learning and case-based learning methods and pedagogies
