On April 8-9, Bucharest hosted the EU SPORT FORUM 2019, an event organised by the European Commission through its Education, Youth, Sport and Culture Department under the auspices of the rotational Council Presidency held by Romania.

This is the main platform for structured dialogue between the Commission and sport stakeholders. The Forum’s main objective was to take stock of the progress achieved in implementing the EU agenda for sport and to seek stakeholders’ views on current and future activities.

The main topics of discussion covered the schools’ contribution to promoting a healthy lifestyle, the role of sports federations in promoting European sport, doping in sport and tackling it through increased awareness and a change in the general attitude towards it.

The participants in the event were ministers charged with sport of EU Member States, MEPs, members of the Romanian Olympic and Sports Committee and of the International Olympic Committee, presidents and vice presidents of European Federations as well as people having a direct stake in sport.

The Romanian Government was represented in the event by Minister of Youth and Sport Constantin-Bogdan Matei and by Cabinet State Advisor on Youth and Sport Gabriela-Daniela Coța.
