The EU Sport Forum 2018 took place this year in Sofia, Bulgaria under the Bulgarian Presidency and was dedicated to “Sport in Europe, investing for the future generation". This high-level 2-day event brought together representatives from the European Commission and the European Parliament, the member states, the Olympic movement, the civil society organisations and further stakeholders. The event was opened by Tibor Navracsics, European Commissioner for Eudcation, Culture, Youth and Sport.

Almost one year ago, on April 26th 2017, the commission presented the European pillar of social rights. It is designed as a compass for a renewed process of upward convergence towards better working and living conditions in the European Union.

The 472th edition of the Eurobarometer is all about sport and physical activity, or more accurately, the lack of it. The main finding of the research is:

‘Nearly half the Europeans never exercise or play sport, and the proportion has increased gradually in recent years’.

The 2-year EU-funded action SIQAF (Sectoral & International Qualification Framework to the EQF) enters its last term.

Transparency and recognition of all types of skills and qualifications are necessary to enable people in Europe access opportunities of being truly mobile between employment and learning, or within and between countries. Over the past 10 years, the European Commission together with the EU member states has been working on implementing and further developing the European Qualification Framework (EQF).

EuropeActive has attended today, January 25 2018, the 1st European Education Summit, dedicated to "laying the foundation of the European Education Area: for an innovative, inclusive and values based education". The summit has been hosted by Tibor Navracsics, European Commissioner for Education, Culture, Youth and Sport.

In the last three days, EuropeActive participated to three conferences in Brussels.

The EUs most famous programme, the E+ programme is turning 30 years this year! The European Commission dedicated a year full campaign with events triggering plenty of emotions, memories and developments for the future of the programme. EuropeActive has been running successfully Erasmus+ funded actions, taking advantage of synergies that exist in our work in making more people, more active, more often and the European Commission.
