Save the date of the #ESP2019


It is our utmost pleasure to announce that the second European Sport Platform will be organised on 4–5 October in Rome, Italy. The 2019 edition of the event will be hosted by OPES Italia (Organizzazione Per l’Educazione allo Sport), which is the entity responsible for ENGSO affairs under the umbrella of the Italian ENGSO member, CONI. The event is organised in partnership with the European Lotteries and Sport and Citizenship.


The themes of #ESP2019 are:


  • Volunteers, the everyday heroes of sport

  • SCORE for diversity in governance

  • Healthy body – healthy mind?


The European Sport Platform brings together ENGSO members and different European stakeholders – professionals, volunteers, policymakers and scholars alike – to stay informed on and take part in the current debate on sport.


Under the theme of Volunteers, the everyday heroes of sport, we will present innovative practices that help attract and retain volunteers, as well as shed light on the value created by volunteers, measured in euros. SCORE for diversity in governance gives us the opportunity to evaluate the progress made in good governance from the perspective of diversity, and propose new goals and actions for the new decade. Is it possible to talk about health without mentioning mental health? The Healthy body – healthy mind? session will have a look at the known impacts that sport has on our minds.
