About us

In BIOT we go “beyond”.

Our relentes fight aims to enhance social values as a tool for change in the life of children. This fight takes us beyond education.
Beyond sport.
Beyond everything.

At BIOT we seek to empower childhood and adolescence values to enhance personal and human development, thus becoming the engine of social change in the world.

BIOT, founded in Barcelona in 2015, seeks to bring about social change in the world through education in values, from the most powerful socio-educational tool that exists: sport.

We’ll take you far, far away. Do you want to join us?

Our projects

BIOT360 is the first tool that succeeds in quantifying and monitoring the personal and human development of children and adolescents through an innovative and unique system that seeks to improve society by empowering the next generation.

BIOTACADEMY is much more than a sports academy.

Sport and leisure are not objectives in themselves, they are a tool for the empowerment of the most vulnerable children and young people, while keeping them away from conflictive and criminal environments, enhancing gender equality, integration into communities and the employability of young people.

Football is an unstoppable social tool. If we dropped a ball anywhere, regardless of the environment,  genuine relationships would be generated among the boys and girls in the area  instantly almost involuntarily.

No matter where they come from, neither their gender. That is the real potential football has as a social tool.

BIOTHOME is our volunteer program. We offer to SOS Children’s Villages a reinforcement of staff in periods where it is very necessary in order to carry out a set of educational, recreational and sports activities that complement the BIOTACADEMY during the holiday periods, as well as training for all those young people who want to devote themselves to the world of education or other areas that request it.
