Europe is changing, people make the continent richer and plural, but at the same time we have to face some unbalanced situations for our youngsters: lack of opportunities and real cultural interaction, economical disadvantages, religious confrontation, gender discrimination, political changes… all these aspects cause the arising of extremist positions that can lead in real radicalization.
Young people are very sensitive to all these situations, and their nonconformity makes them an easy target group to be caught by extremist positions that conduct them to radicalization.
To avoid and prevent such situations, mainly in those youngsters with more possibilities to fall in the hands of radicalization, the sport is a very useful tool to combat any kind of radicalization.
