European Commission launches public consultation
The European Commission has launched an online consultation on the EU's strategic choices for the implementation of the new EU competence in the field of sport. The Lisbon Treaty calls on the EU to promote European sporting issues and to develop the European dimension in sport. The European Commission is preparing concrete policy options in view of the implementation of this new EU competence.
In this framework, the Commission is conducting a consultation process with governmental and non-governmental stakeholders and has now extended this consultation process to the wider public. The consultation is addressed to organisations and citizens with an interest in sport in order to obtain their input for the Commission's future proposals.
The outcome of the consultation and information on how the Commission used the opinions of respondents will be published on their website.
This online consultation will remain open until 1 June 2010. Filling in the questionnaire will take approximately 20 minutes.
