The general objective of the BRIDGE project (Promotion of European Traditional Sports and Games, a BRIDGE for Intercultural Dialogue) is to promote European traditional sports and games (ETSG) as a BRIDGE to actively foster peaceful intercultural coexistence.

The BRIDGE project pursues the following specific objectives:

1. To develop a model of best practices for education in intercultural coexistence through ETSG;
2. To establish a model for the organisation of TSG festivals where youths, adults and older people can share an intercultural dialogue in a peaceful way;
3. To establish a sustainable transnational network to promote ETSG, aiming to exchange best practices and experiences;
4. To demonstrate, with scientific evidence, the contribution (social impact) of TSG for promoting intercultural dialogue.

To achieve these objectives, four areas or lines of work are established:

1. The development of an educational application of intercultural coexistence, based on ETSG, in schools in Spain, France, Italy and Portugal.
2. The activation of networking among these European schools.
3. The incorporation of traditional games played in schools into the Tocatì international festival of traditional games held annually in Verona, Italy, establishing a bridge for dialogue among students from these schools, and also with other participants and organisations attending the festival.
4. The scientific study of the social impact on intercultural dialogue activities undertaken by schools. This work will be conducted by researchers from universities of the participating countries.
