Ik schreef een hoofdstuk over ‘We App to Move’, een digitaal platform om kwetsbare jongeren aan te zetten zelf sportactiviteiten te organiseren, in het boek ‘Social Innovation in Sport‘ (editor: Anne Tjønndal), uitgegeven bij Palgrave Macmillan. Hieronder kan je de korte inhoud lezen. Wil je het volledige artikel lezen, klik dan hier of geef me gewoon een seintje, dan stuur ik het door.

“In this chapter, Van Tuyckom highlights how socially vulnerably youth in Bruges were involved in every step of the process of creating a digital platform to support self-organized sporting activities (‘We app to move’). She elaborates on the organisation of neighbourhood sports in the city of Bruges (Belgium) and discusses the particular challenges they face. The chapter discusses a number of relevant aspects of social innovation in the public sector and briefly addresses the role that is attached to citizens as initiators or co-creators of public services in the context of self-organization. Van Tuyckom concludes by stressing the usefulness of the design thinking methodology and calls for a sports sector that becomes fully part of the ‘design for social innovation’ movement.”
