Together with EC-OE, EuropeActive served as an observer organisation for the European Sectoral Social Dialogue for Sport and Active Leisure (test-phase) and has been successfully leading the subcommittee for Active Leisure.
Within the context of the project “Supporting the European Sectoral Social Dialogue for Sport and Active Leisure (test-phase)”, the active leisure sub-committee (lead by EuropeActive and EC-OE) ran 3 round table meetings (Bucharest - RO, Helsinki - FI, Krakow - PL), with approx. 40 social partners for the Active Leisure sector from both the employee and employer side together. The actions were well received and the need for a structured implementation of sectoral social dialogue was confirmed again by the participants, mostly focusing on education & training issues as well as recognition of qualification and health and safety. Furthermore, the question of sectoral representativeness at national level was identified as a main concern which has to be addressed in future projects.
