    • providing sport clubs managers and owners with design driven innovation approaches to face daily sustainable challenges, with very limited financial resources
    • giving designers the opportunity to make themselves known by their community and potential future customers, demonstrating that civic and sporting participation also represents a lever for the growth of skills and work inclusion
