TAFISA and its transnational, collaborative project partners believe that Traditional Sports and Games (TSG) are part of the world intangible heritage and a symbol of the cultural diversity of our societies. TSG are an effective vehicle to encourage participation in Sport for All and physical activity, and also an efficient means to convey values of solidarity, diversity, inclusion, cultural awareness and peace.

“Recall: Games of the Past – Sports for Today” is a project led by TAFISA, supported by 12 partner organisations coming from all over Europe, that was co-funded by the European Commission from the 1st of January 2014 to the 30th of June 2015 under the 2013 call for actions “European Partnerships on Sport”, and that now continues on its own will.

Project Recall aims to reintroduce Traditional Sports and Games into the daily lives of young people as a means to tackle social challenges of today – including the epidemics of physical inactivity, by documenting and disseminating TSG heritage worldwide. At first centred in Europe, project Recall now focuses on TSG all over the world.
