Delegates from across Europe are in Leeds and surrounding areas to explore how sport can be used to promote diversity.
Representatives from Croatia, Estonia, Germany, Hungary, Malta, Poland, Slovenia, Spain, Turkey, Ireland, Portugal and the Netherlands have come to the city for the Sporting Diversity study visit.
Organised by The British Council, the event will partly look at how equality can be delivered through sports in UK schools.
Stephen Curran, headteacher of Tong School in Bradford – one of those taking part – said; “We are a truly multi-cultural school for 11 to 19-year-olds and proud of our diverse community.
“We know that our students will eventually become independent citizens in a global world where their success and happiness depend on their ability to mix with people from differing backgrounds on both a social and professional level.”
The visit is part of a wider programme organised by the Youth in Action programme. More than 20 participants are taking part to explore how the UK addresses issues of cultural diversity, especially through sport.
