Hand-over of the High Level Groups’ recommendations to Commissioner Navracsics

Hand-over of the High Level Groups’ recommendations to Commissioner Navracsics

The two High Level Groups established in 2015 by Commissioner Navracsics -to advance work on his priorities in the field of sport- delivered their final reports on the 29th of June 2016 on the occasion of a special ceremony.

Both documents include diverse recommendations addressed to the Commissioner.

It is a great honour for EOSE, that our President, Thierry Zintz, had been  acting as co-rapporteur (with Valérie Fourneyron) within the High Level Group on sport diplomacy and therefore was in charge of handing-over the report to the Commissionner. The document identifies how sport can play a more significant role in helping the EU reach its external policy goals as well as how sport could be a tool to promote European values.

The report and recommendations on grassroots sport deal with issues which are fundamental to the contribution grassroots sport can make to European societies: health, social inclusion, informal learning and skills development, volunteering, sustainable financing, urban planning and infrastructure.

During the handing-over ceremony, Commissioner Navracsics thanked the members of both groups for their work and for the high quality of the documents.
