2015 should see the first European Week of Sport (EWoS), designed to promote participation in sport and physical activity across Europe. On 20 November 2013 a preparatory seminar took place in Brussels.
Representatives of the European Commission met with major stakeholders to exchange experiences and learn about existing national sport weeks, days and events. The discussion covered mainly the objectives, organisational structure, activities, finance issues and communication and will feed into the format of the future week. Following a period of reflection and analysis, Commissioner Vassiliou will announce the final concept in a "pledging conference", which is likely to take place in June 2014 in Brussels.
For further information, see the report of the seminar.
