Member States’ ministers for Sport adopted conclusions on the economic dimensions of sport and its socio-economic benefits.
At the same time the SIQAF project is coming to an end, EuropeActive’s new project “Blueprint for skills development and employment for Active Leisure” is speeding up with the first Technical Expert Group (TEG) meeting. Blueprint is the long-term strategy to develop new skills for current and future workers, for improving employability of young people, and supporting entrepreneurship and growth across the sector.
Both technical expert groups are working on delivering the various actions in preparation of the Blueprint for active leisure. Some of these activities include the planning of a research on current active leisure qualifications, skills foresight, the setting-up of an awarding organisation and a procedure for recognition of individual achievement through a professional card system among others. The results of the individual and group work will be shared and discussed during the next full partner meeting in September in Cologne Sport university in Germany.
