The European Commission, Directorate-General for Education, Youth, Sport and Culture, welcomes you to the 2022 edition of the EU Sport Forum. We are delighted that the Forum will take place as a physical event on 16 and 17 June 2022 in Lille, France.
The EU Sport Forum is an annual event organised by the European Commission in support of the continuous dialogue with the European and international sport community. It is a central meeting point between sport organisations, representatives of the EU Institutions and Member States exchanging views on the current and future sport policies.
This years’ EU Sport Forum theme is ‘European Sport: fair, inclusive and fit for a sustainable future’. Both days will cover current priorities in the field of European sport with an emphasis on inclusiveness, equality and solidarity as key principles and values of a European sports model; the green transition of the sport sector, in particular the promotion of sustainable sports infrastructure; good governance in sport with focus on athletes empowerment; and the protection and promotion of well-being notably of young people through sport. The HealthyLifestyle4All Youth Ideas Labs will also be launched during the event, as a contribution to the European Year of Youth 2022 through sport.
At the occasion of the EU Sport Forum 2022, the European Commission will organise two closed side-events on 15 June at the venue of the event: the European Week of Sport Key Players Seminar and the Kick-off of the HealthyLifeStyle4All Youth Ideas Labs, consisting of young participants nominated by youth organisations.
The EU Sport Forum will be web streamed. Web streaming will be available for the sessions on 16/06 from 14:00 until 17/06 at the end of the day (including the parallel sessions taking place on 17/06 AM), except for the HealthyLifestyle4All Youth Ideas Labs.
