As declared by the European Commissioner for the Education, Culture, Youth and Sport Mr. Tibor Navracsics “The EU Sport Forum is an opportunity to promote sport as a means of building a better Europe – but also as an instrument to forge strong relationships with our partners across the globe. I look forward to learning about fresh ideas on how we can take our joint work forward.”

The EU Sport Forum is the main platform for structured dialogue between the European Commissions and sport stakeholders. The Forum’s main objective is to take stock of progress achieved in implementing the EU agenda for sport and to seek stakeholders’ views on current and planned/possible future activities.
The message of the Forum “Sport in Europe, investing for future generations” says more than any other doctrine about the need to develop and promote physical activity.

At the end of the Forum, FIM Europe President Dr Wolfgang Srb stated:
“It is important for us as motorcycle sport to attend this conference and to meet many top representatives from other sports and European countries. All in all, we all share the same values: promote the sport, support athletes, clubs and volunteers and work together with all relevant authorities and partners. Legacy and sustainability are key elements”.Alessandro Sambuco and Dr Wolfgang Srb at the EU Sport Forum
