EOC EU Office press release: A new EU Commission disregarding sport?
EOC EU Office, 2014-09-10, Brussels - Jean-Claude Juncker has announced today the structure of the new EU Commission along with the names of the Commissioners-designate. None of the portfolios explicitly mentions sport. Until now, sport has been included in the Education, Culture, Youth and Multilingualism portfolio under the chair of Commissioner Vassiliou. M. Tibor Navracsics would now be in charge of this portfolio, entitled Education, Culture, Youth and Citizenship.
All around Europe, countries are worried when it comes to youth employability. Combating youth unemployment should be a top priority to securing a positive future for young people.
One contribution is provided by a group of sport- and socio-cultural organizations, including ENGSO Youth.
