Children’s Safeguarding in sports: Donostia Kirola's Prevention and Action Protocol.


The Municipal Sports Board of the Donostia-SS City Council, in collaboration with The Equality Department, has carried out a process of awareness raising and reflection with local sports agents, which has been completed with a protocol for the prevention of violence against minors in this field.

The mission of the Basque Team Foundation is to provide resources to non-professional Basque elite athletes in order to facilitate their participation in the highest international competitions. To this end, it has a system of scholarships and grants that it periodically announces since the beginning of its activity in 2007.

In 2022, the bases for the awarding of scholarships and grants have been analyzed in order to identify any biases that could lead to a discriminatory distribution of the resources allocated to top level, either among the different sports modalities or between women and men. To this end, a quantitative analysis was made of the distribution of Basque Team resources among athletes, technical staff, judges and entities, and a qualitative analysis of the bases for the awarding of grants to athletes for the promotion of high-level sports and aid to sports entities for high-level projects.

The Government of Navarra, through the Sports Institute, is considering adding to the network of sports facilities in Navarra a new specific facility for the practice of athletics in winter, in response to the demand of athletes, clubs and the Athletics Federation of Navarra. Given the possibilities offered by the market to meet the needs demanded by athletics in Navarra and the economic uncertainty derived from the investment to be made, and the costs of managing the facility, a preliminary study has been carried out that analyzes the map of existing indoor athletics tracks in Spain and approximates the economic scope of the investment that the Government of Navarra must face in order to build the aforementioned facility.

Over the years between the creation of the Real Sociedad women's first team in 2012 and its consolidation, the entity has understood that this sports project, aimed at producing structural changes in women's football in Gipuzkoa and, therefore, to generate a drive for equality between women and men in the field of football in Gipuzkoa, had to be framed within a more far-reaching project for equality between women and men which, in addition to influencing strictly sporting aspects, would also affect other aspects of organizational character of the entity. For this reason, in 2021, it has adopted the decision to draw up its II Equality Plan which, like Plan I, has been drawn up by Avento.


In 2021, the Government of Castilla-La Mancha created the Committee for Equality in Sport, with the aim of establishing a roadmap to implement measures aimed at promoting equality between women and men in Castilian-La Mancha sport. Avento has been the entity in charge of carrying out the initial diagnosis that will make it possible to identify the existing needs in this area.
