Sport & Inclusion

Goran Oreb


Over time, the changes in life and consumption styles of families, together with the access to sports practice of the weaker social groups such as old people, disabled, children, poor, etc., have given start to a real evolution of the meaning of sport that increasingly benefits the edu- cational, inclusive and social value, downgrading the consideration of the competitive sports performance. In this perspective, starting with what a person is able to give or take, regardless of his physical or mental differences with others, sports encourages the consideration he has about himself and his existence, in full agreement with the assumption of inclusion.

The social and educational dimension of sports movement is now well-established and pro- moted internationally in support of integration and inclusion phenomena, and is matched with a reconsideration of the concept of health that leads to understand sport as a plurality of practices that help configuring it as an educational strategy in the way the subject should live his leisure time.
