The European Commission organised the EU Sport Forum 2022 in Lille, France, on 16 and 17 June, under the theme of “European Sport: fair, inclusive and fit for a sustainable future”.

The event gathered 400 participants from sport organisations, EU institutions, national ministries responsible for sport, and local authorities, and provided a great opportunity for networking and exchanging views on the current and future sport policies.

Following the opening made by Mariya Gabriel, Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth, both days of the event covered a series of main priorities in the field of European sport. Two high-level panels were organised on Day 1 – the first one focusing on inclusiveness, equality and solidarity as key principles and values of a European sports model, and a second one on the green transition of the sport sector.

The second day was dedicated to some parallel sessions on topics such as good governance with focus on athletes’ empowerment, the role of sport in defending and promoting European fundamental values, and the promotion of well-being through sport.

The agenda for sports of the upcoming Czech Presidency of the Council of the European Union was highlighted in the closing session.

EOSE was represented by its Past President, Prof. Thierry Zintz, and its Executive Director, Aurélien Favre.
