20-23 June 2017: Budapest Interregional Event

Budapest (Hungary) – On 20-23 June 2017, Budapest-based Megallo Foundation hosted the 7th Interregional Event of INSPORT+ in the Hungarian capital, alongside 20 guests representing  7 partner delegations from Germany, Italy, France, Bulgaria, Portugal, Spain and Belgium.

Partners engaged in a 3-day event featuring interaction and sport activities with young people with mental disabilities in rehabilitation from drug and alcohol misuse and mental health disorders.

The first day was dedicated to visiting a Hungarian protestant drug therapy and sport center of disadvantaged and disabled young people: the “MRE-KIMM Fiatalkorúak Drogterápiás Otthona” in Ráckeresztúr, a village in Fejér county, 40 km far from Budapest.

INSPORT+ partners have been involved in exchanges and sport activities with the young people of the centre, including football, basketball, table tennis and courses in the adventure park of the centre; the day ended with a common bathe at Lake Velence.

On the following day Megallo moderated the Conference “Sport with equal chances” at Nyírő Gyula Hospital (National Institute of Psychiatry and Addictions) gathering sport trainers, educators, mental health and rehabilitation experts, as well as national and local authority representatives.

Presentations and discussions focused on the state-of-play of access to support services and sport and physical activity for people with mental disabilities, mental health disorders and addiction in Hungary and Budapest.

The seminar was followed by a visit to Megallo House in the centre of Pest (the area right of the river Danube in Budapest), where partners experienced different group therapy methods together, including a theatre and movement training, and attended an internal meeting for a quick update and planning on INSPORT+ tasks and partners’ initiatives.

On the final day INSPORT+ partners gathered at the training place of Para-Fitt S.E., which is a sport association for disabled young people (mainly with mental disabilities), and trained together with the young people followed by the association in karate, wall climbing and a in team competition in gymnastic.

The Budapest Interregional Event closed with a public INSPORT+ bicycle tour through Budapest city centre and along the Danube up to Margaret Island, a mobilisation event with partners wearing t-shirts with the INSPORT+, Megallo Foundation and EU logos to showcase the project on a hot summer day with a great level of exposure to the general public.
