A couple of weeks to go. The EU Sport Forum edition 2017 is going to take place next 8th and 9th March, in St. Julian’s, Malta, organised as always by the DG Education, Youth, Sport and Culture of the European Commission. It will be surely a great occasion for the European Sports organisations, that will exchange views, create new networks and give feedback to the European Institutions about the developments of the Erasmus+ Programme and the European Sport Policy in general.
The European Multisport Club Association is being in Malta to play its role, as it has always been doing in its recent past. EMCA has a strong relationship with the EU Sport Forum, having participated to all its editions since the Association’s birth in 2013. Vilnius, Milan, The Hague and, now, St. Julian’s are the cities of our route, in important steps towards the promotion of Multisport in the European continent.
As the European Commission describes, the Forum is the main platform for structured dialogue between the European institutions and sport stakeholders. Its main objective is to take stock of progress achieved in implementing the EU agenda for sport and to seek stakeholders’ views on current, planned or possible future activities.
During one day and a half, various sessions will cover many topics of interest for European sport including:
- grassroots sport
- good governance
- follow-up of the high-level groups on sport diplomacy and grassroots sport
- contribution to growth and jobs
- gender-based violence
