This year’s theme is ‘To be who you are, everyone deserves that’. With this slogan, “De Warmste Week” wants to support people who cannot be themselves in today’s society: because they have fewer opportunities, because they are mentally or physically challenged, because of the way they look or because of who they like. Because 1 in 5 people in Flanders says they cannot be who they are.
The project of Out For The Win focuses on two fronts: together with (LGBT+) athletes, we want to develop an accessible and safe sport environment for LGBT+ youth with workshops and sport camps. In addition, we want to support sports clubs and federations to build an inclusive sports world in the longer term.
“For each of them, the 200 selected projects really make a difference. And now it is up to all of us. I hope Flanders will show its warmest side” – Jury President, Eva Vereecke.
We are super honoured to be one of the selected projects and can’t wait to get started!
