18th ENGSO Forum - "Role of sport club in changing societies in future"


11-12 September 2015, Brussels, Belgium, within the framework of the European Week of Sport

Background

ENGSO signed a partnership agreement with the European Commission on the support of the European Week of Sport.

As ENGSO is the voice of voluntary sports organisations in Europe and advocates for grassroots sport, in the framework of the European Week of Sport ENGSO wants to highlight the important societal role of sport clubs in activating European citizens.

Saturday, 12 September 2015 is a European Week of Sport focus day dedicated to sport clubs, therefore ENGSO decided to organise its annual ENGSO Forum in Brussels linked with the respective focus day.

Aim

We have a great event planned to widen participants' knowledge on EU funding possibilities, and discuss with them the role of sport clubs in the future. Strategies and approaches how sport clubs can accommodate to changing societies and activate citizens will be presented. In order to set a good example in activating citizens, sport activities will be offered. Our Forum, bringing together decision makers, experts and stakeholders, is also a good occasion for networking.

Outcome

The 18th ENGSO Forum took place in Brussels on 11-12 September 2015 within the framework of the European Week of Sport (EWoS), namely on the EWoS focus day dedicated to sport clubs. As usual, we tackled current European sport issues: this time, the role of sport clubs in activating citizens and accommodating to changing societies. Next to widening the participants' knowledge, the Forum also provided a platform for interaction and exchange among ENGSO member organisations, partners and decision-makers, giving an informative and inspiring atmosphere to the event.
