We continue to promote and recognize the EPEKA Association, soc. ent., as a socially responsible company in a broader, international environment.

EPEKA Association, soc. ent., is the recipient of the Social Inclusion Badge Award, which is given to organizations whose activities and their consequences affect the well-being of the wider community.

Recipients of Social Inclusion Badge are recognized in the international environment as champions or messengers of an inclusive and solidary society.

The social inclusion badge is awarded to organizations that are “socially responsible; promote the inclusion of vulnerable social groups and equal opportunities for all.” They achieve this empowerment through sports activities and programs.

The EPEKA Association, soc. ent., is committed to the values of solidarity, inclusion and cooperation. In addition to basic physical activity, sport also has a broader social dimension. With its help, we can address pressing social and societal problems. At the same time, we include members of vulnerable, marginalized groups in sports activities.

We have:

  • filled the (basket) bins
  • kicked racism
  • we turned Mariborski otok into a golf course…
  • … & another time into a playfield.

And what are the benefits of being included in a list – in the database of organizations with the flattering title of Social inclusion badge? Easier access to organizations. Making partnerships. Exchange of knowledge and experience.

The holder of the Active Youth project has over 20,000 followers on social networks and an extensive network of partner organizations. Their campaigns reach a wide range of stakeholders, and their projects resonate with the wider European public.
