Integration Through Sport
As part of the Innovation Dublin festival, Dublin City Council’s Office for Integration, together with its Sport and Active Living Section, in association with the Dublin City Sports Network, will host this themed city roundtable discussion, which will explore the potential of sport as a pathway to promote the integration of the city’s immigrant communities.

With Dublin designated as the European Capital of Sport in 2010, this is a timely discussion designed to

  • develop approaches to increasing the participation of immigrant communities in sport in the city,

  • promote sport as an inclusive measure with benefits for all,

  • and maximise opportunities for young people from an immigrant background to find a way of expressing and cultivating their talent.


The roundtable discussion, which will host 25 people from range of sporting interests in the city, will be a facilitated session and take place on:
Monday 19th October. 2009 in the Wood Quay Venue at Civic Offices, Wood Quay, Dublin 8.
