Tbilisi Needs Healthy Fields
The number of people engaged in sports in Georgia is critically low. For example, about 4% of the world plays football while only 0.7% of people do in Georgia. Low engagement in sports among youth tends to lead to an increased risk of violence, smoking, and alcohol abuse. Low levels of access to sports infrastructure is a part of this problem.
What we will do:
We want to take the shrinking public fields and yards in Tbilisi and redesign them so that they can be used to play sports such as volleyball. Tbilisi yards are becoming more and more jammed with garages and different structures. Our solution is to install hoops and nets for basketball in these spaces and turn them into colourful and fun places where youth can enjoy and have fun.
What we want to achieve:
We want children and youth to become more engaged in sports by increasing their access to sport facilities and spaces.
