Beyond EurAsian development between the 6 partners each organization shares common fields of work area where new practices and tools offered by NFE and ETS will add extra value to fostering community engagement, social inclusion, active participation and citizenship. ETS methodology was chosen as it consists of the integration and implementation of sport elements to be used for educational purpose to address social issues, develop social competences and provoke a lasting social transformation.

EUASAN capacity building project will develop communities on two level: 1) European and Asian youth leaders/workers to build intercultural relations and understanding between these 2 regions 2) within the organizations and their field of work. Participants to gain necessary skills and become trainers/facilitators to involve communities and turn them into active and happy citizens by creating platforms/activities for inclusion.
