Social Action 2012

Programme Info

Social Action 2012 is an initiative of the young sociologists from the University of Warsaw, established in 2008. Our main focus was to research and elaborate the social aspects of organizing UEFA Euro 2012 in Poland and Ukraine. Our objectives were: to promote the idea of importance of sport for everyone within Polish institutions and media discourse, to strengthen the processes of inter-institutional cooperation and learning, to encourage the debate about the self-image of the Poles in the context of the Championship and about social legacy of UEFA Euro 2012. We established several soft, cooperative initiatives within the fields, engaging and networking different governmental and non-governmental Polish institutions.
