‘Towards a healthier, resilient and sustainable European sport’
The EU Sport Forum is the European Commission's premiere event in support of expanding sporting activities and programmes across Europe. Hundreds of high-level participants - including representatives of sport movement, federations, sport clubs, Member States/sport ministries, local authorities, academics, athletes and various sport organisations - gather to discuss how the sport and physical activity can be harnessed to build a closer, more cohesive Europe.
The Forum was the perfect occasion for sport organisations to exchange views and engage in debates with policy makers and representatives of the EU institutions and Member States. This year, the discussion focused on greener sport, opportunities after Covid-19, gender equality and healthy life style with interventions of excellent speakers. The EU Sport Forum provided the opportunity to hear Commissioner Gabriel speaking about the main priorities and challenges in the field of sport at EU level.
It took place online on 8-9 June 2021 from 9.00 CEST (Central European Summer Time).
