A worldwide network of teachers and researchers in traditional games and sports

by Biel Pubill Soler in Meetings

Since 2001, when AEJeST was created, the will to encourage networking to promote TSG and their social values has been one of the main challenges. The course of time has confirmed that there are no frontiers in this field. Moreover, it led us in 2009 to become founding members of ITSGA and to initiate projects at the European and international levels.

As we told you in our candidacy, one of the initiatives is to create a worldwide network of teachers and researchers in traditional games and sports.

After announcing this initiative to colleagues from different continents, we received a very positive response from people motivated to participate in this network as teachers and/or researchers.

In parallel, after receiving the institutional support of INEFC, I think that the beginning of the year 2022 is a good time to present this project.

You are all invited to attend the presentation.

Pere Lavega (President AEJeST)
