EUPEA observer in EU Expert Group on Sport, Health and Participation
The EU Expert Group on Sport, Health and Participation held its first meeting in Brussels on 27 September 2011. During this meeting EUPEA was accepted as observer in the EU Expert Group.
This Expert Group is one of six new Expert Groups established by the Council's Resolution on an EU Work Plan for Sport for 2011-2014, and it was the first Expert Group to hold a meeting in this new framework. The Group, composed of experts appointed by Member States, is mandated by the Council to identify measures to promote health-enhancing physical activity and participation in grassroots sport by mid-2013. It will report to the Council Working Party on Sport. At its first meeting, the Group agreed on an ambitious work schedule that includes five concrete deliverables.
