Where it all begins: New Young Delegates’ Force
This summer of 2017, ENGSO Youth became stronger with 47 Young Delegates selected to serve as the next generation of youth sport leaders in Europe. Young Delegates are experts from 23 European countries, of both genders, aged between 18 and 35. They have expertise in various sport-related fields, such as health, sport accessibility, human rights, social inclusion, volunteering, fight against doping, fair play, sustainable development, communication, the Olympic movement, etc. Young professionals, volunteers, athletes and coaches will join their forces with the ENGSO Youth Committee in voicing the youth in sports. More information about the New Delegates can be found here.

ENGSO Youth gave their feedback on EWoS
As an advocatory non-governmental organisation for youth in sports, ENGSO Youth stepped in giving their feedback to the European Commission about the European Week of Sport. Given the fact that young people represent 17,7% of the EU-28's population, EWoS is a great platform to include youth more actively organisation-wise and participation-wise. ENGSO Youth offers recommendations in order to improve EWoS’ relevance, effectiveness, efficiency, EU added value and sustainability. Have a look at the feedback from ENGSO Youth here.
