SPORTVISION2012 : VOLUNTEERING, FITNESS DOPING, FINANCING & HEALTH
CHALLENGES AND SOLUTIONS IN SPORT FOR ALL IN EUROPE

Welcome to the European SPORTVISION2012 Conference.

 

The incoming Danish Presidency of the European Union is delighted to invite you to its ambitious and wide-ranging conference addressing the most pressing challenges in Sport for All.

 

The conference will be your opportunity to benefit from state-of-the-art examples of promotion of volunteering in sport for all, novel initiatives in the fight against fitness doping, creative samples on financing and health in sport for all, high-level political debate and agenda-setting, and excellent networking and partnership opportunities, and unique study tours.

 

The European SPORTVISION2012 Conference will address the present challenges in Sport for All through a varied programme that will allow us to ask the difficult and critical questions and to explore answers and solutions.

 

Key EU stakeholders, such as Members of the European Parliament and the European Commission, are invited to join the debates, and to engage with sport organizations in order to openly address common challenges. Cross-sector cooperation, learning and innovation are some of the main drivers for the development of the physical activity sector. In that spirit further stakeholders such as academics, ministry and city officials, businesses, community organizers, and medical experts will also join the conference and be part of the active forum of 350 people.

 

If you are interested in meeting the challenges in Sport for All,

join us in Copenhagen on March 19-20, 2012!

 

Yours sincerely

 

Danish Presidency of the European Union

Danish Ministry of Culture

National Olympic Committee and Sports Confederation of Denmark

TRACK 1 : FITNESS DOPING
STRATEGY FOR STOPPING STEROIDS

The ‘Strategy for Stopping Steroids’ track will be a unique opportunity to share knowledge and experience on the current European effort regarding the abuse of steroids in fitness centers and in sport for all in general. The track will outline good practices and give valuable insight in how to start and to carry out efforts on the matter of preventing and stopping the use of steroids.


The track will be based on the co-European report “Strategy for Stopping Steroids”, a report that will be released in connection to the conference. This report is a result of the partnership of Anti-doping organizations and drug prevention units in Sweden, The Netherlands, Poland, Cyprus and Denmark.

 

The headline topics will be: legislation, doping control models, preventive work, financial structure of initiatives towards doping free fitness centres, youth culture and risk behaviour, trafficking of doping substances to and within Europe and medical focus on the abuse of steroids.

 

The track will address participation of decision makers, European national anti-doping organizations (NADO’s), scientists and authorities working with the fight against doping.

TRACK 2 : VOLUNTEERING
VOLUNTEERS MAKE A DIFFERENCE

Volunteers make a difference!

 

The ‘Volunteers make a difference’ track will be an opportunity to discuss recent strategic challenges in volunteering and to outline recommendations for the European policy makers. This will be a timely follow-up on the 2011 European Year of Volunteering and the Aarhus Declaration on volunteering of the EU Sport Ministers from 2002 (http://ec.europa.eu/sport/white-paper/swd-the-societal-role-of-sport_en.htm).

 

The conference will in particular address challenges in volunteering for sport for all, notably the

     - education,
     - recognition,
     - legal frameworks,
     - recruitment,
     - retention,

     - and funding of volunteers.

 

The track is also the closing conference of the International Sport and Culture Association’s EU supported EuroVolNet project (www.eurovolnet.info) , and will as such present project results and launch the EuroVolNet Online Tutorial.

TRACK 3 : FINANCING & HEALTH
HOW CAN SPORT FOR ALL CONTRIBUTE TO THE EU 2020 STRATEGY OF SMART, SUSTAINABLE AND INCLUSIVE GROWTH?

If ‘Sport for All’ is to become more than a slogan in the EU and be a positive contributor to the EU Sport Policy and EU 2020 strategy of smart, sustainable and inclusive growth, a series of challenges and developments need to be addressed.

 

These challenges include securing adequate financial and structural support for grassroots sport and the real health and social inclusion potential in grassroots sport. Therefore, we need to identify and develop the roles of both well-known and new actors in the field of public and private, commercial and non-profit spheres of sport for all.

 

The track themes include:

• broader participation in sport and physical activity in Europe
• the economic importance of sport for all in the European societies
• funding of sport for all from local to national level
• sport for all and social inclusion
• sport for all and health
• sport for all and the commercial sport offers
• developing and maintaining facilities for sport for all
