Commission unveils first-ever sport package
Combating doping in amateur sport, promoting social inclusion, gender equality and improving the health of Europeans are among the key policy areas to be addressed by the EU’s new sports policy. But preparations for the launch were marred by concerns about how much funding would be available for EU sports policies.
The plans are outlined in a communication unveiled by Sports Commissioner Androulla Vassiliou in Strasbourg on 18 January. The communication, entitled ’Developing the European Dimension in Sport’, sets out the EU’s first-ever sports programme, a limited version of which the EU executive hopes to launch in 2012 ahead of the first fully-fledged raft of policies in 2014.
’Sport is important for Europe’s economy and a key component of its social model’, said Commissioner Vassiliou at the communication’s launch in Strasbourg.
A step in the right direction
The 18 January Commissioner Androulla Vassiliou presented the European Commission’s plans for ‘Developing the European Dimension in Sport’. ISCA Europe chairman, Filippo Fossati, congratulates the Commission on this important initiative and calls for actions that are close to EU citizens. “The European Union needs to substantiate its leadership in sport by providing an overall political vision, which engages the citizens. A narrow focus on niche politics directed towards professional sports would be the wrong signal to send’, emphasizes Fossati.
ISCA EUROPE has been looking forward to the proposals and actions from the European Commission, which were expected to follow up on the European Parliament’s recent explicit inclination towards an increased European support for grassroots sport, as well as the Sport Ministers priority of the overall participation in sport and physical activity.

The Sport and Citizenship journal addresses in various ways and through diverse contributions, the major issues linked to sport and its social impact in Europe. It further contains a special focus on a very topical subject: sport and international development. In slightly under a month, sport has been mentioned twice by the United Nations as a vehicle for education, health, development and peace. However, sport in itself is not the universal cure for all problems. Sometimes it is a trap which attracts tension, corruption and all kinds of wheeler dealing.
Featured themes in this issue:
• The analysis of European sports policy
• Sport and Health
• Sport and Education
• Sport and law
• Sport and Sustainable development
• Sport and International Development

Sport Development: A summary of experiences and good practices
The Swiss Academy for Development (SAD) has released a new report summarizing the experiences and good practices out of four pilot projects in the area of Sport & Development. The report aims to uncover the development potential of sport in three post-conflict projects and one post-disaster project, each with varied aims and objectives, ranging from: psychosocial rehabilitation, to inter-ethnic dialogue, to non-formal education.
The selected projects take place in different geographical locations and in highly diverse social and cultural contexts: in Iran, in Lebanon, in Sri Lanka and in Nepal. The overall trends drawn from the experience of SAD provide a useful starting point for future projects in the area of Sport & Development.
Lifelong Physical Activity-Increased Happiness for All?
South Finland EU-Office is organizing a seminar Lifelong Physical Activity-Increased Happiness for All? in Brussels the 22nd of February at 9.00-13.00. The seminar will take place at the Committee of the Regions, Rue Belliard 99-101, 1040 Brussels. A lunch reception will follow at 13.00-15.00.
The seminar aims at bringing together local and regional representatives, researchers and EU officials to discuss physical activity as a means to promote health and wellbeing. Sport and physical activity can make major contribution to health promotion and disease prevention. As Europe is ageing rapidly, this is even more pressing matter today and in the years to come. Promoting physical activity can have a positive effect on people’s wellbeing at work and in decreasing the costs of health care. Sport can also be considered as a tool for local and regional development.
