Brussels, Belgium

Within the framework of the European Week of Sport, ENGSO is organising its annual forum to widen participants’ knowledge on EU funding possibilities, and initiate a discussion about the role of sport clubs in the future.

Strategies and approaches on how sport clubs can accommodate to changing societies and can activate citizens will be presented. In order to set a good example, sport activities will also be offered. Our Forum, bringing together decision-makers, experts and stakeholders is a good networking opportunity.

ENGSO signed a partnership agreement with the European Commission supporting the European Week of Sport. Saturday, 12 September 2015 is the European Week of Sport focus day dedicated to sport clubs. Therefore, ENGSO decided to organise its annual ENGSO Forum in Brussels to highlight the important societal role of sport clubs in activating European citizens.
