How can Sport for All contribute to the EU 2020 strategy of smart, sustainable and inclusive growth?
If ‘Sport for All’ is to become more than a slogan in the EU and be a positive contributor to the EU Sport Policy and EU 2020 strategy of smart, sustainable and inclusive growth, a series of challenges and developments need to be addressed.
These challenges include securing adequate financial and structural support for grassroots sport and the real health and social inclusion potential in grassroots sport. Therefore, we need to identify and develop the roles of both well-known and new actors in the field of public and private, commercial and non-profit spheres of sport for all.
The track themes include:
# broader participation in sport and physical activity in Europe,
# the economic importance of sport for all in the European societies,
# funding of sport for all from local to national level,
# sport for all and social inclusion,
# sport for all and health,
# sport for all and the commercial sport offers,
# developing and maintaining facilities for sport for all.
