Resolution on a European Union Work Plan for Sport for the period 2011-2014.

On 20th of May 2011, the Council of the European Union adopted a resolution on a European Union Work Plan for Sport for the period 2011-2014. The Work Plan for Sport is based on the list of themes identified in the Communication and the White Paper on Sport.

A priority should be given by Member States and the Commission for the period covered by the present work plan on the following three themes:

  1. Integrity of sport, in particular the fight against doping, match-fixing and the promotion of good governance
  2. Social values of sport, in particular health, social inclusion, education and volunteering
  3. Economic aspects of sport, in particular sustainable financing of grassroots sports and evidence-based policy making

The implementation of this Work Plan will be supported by a number of informal expert groups which will build on the work of the EU Working Groups (established in 2005) on Anti-Doping, Education and Training in Sport, Sport and Health, Social Inclusion and Equal Opportunities in Sport, Sport and Economics, and Non-Profit Sport Organisations. The expert groups will be requested to focus their work on the priority themes.

The Council of the European Union invite the Member States and the Commission to establish expert groups on the following subjects for the duration of the current Work Plan:

  •  anti-doping
  •  good governance in sport
  • education and training in sport
  • sport, health and participation
  • sport statistics
  • sustainable financing of sport

In addition to expert groups, other working methods may include e.g. Presidency conferences, informal meetings of Sports Directors and Ministers, Commission studies and conferences.

In the first half of 2014, the implementation of the present Work Plan will be evaluated by the Council on the basis of a report prepared by the Commission by the end of 2013.
