WHAT DOES SPORT AND CITIZENSHIP DO?

Sport and Citizenship is the first European Think tank on sport. It is a forum of reflection and facilitates networking between public authorities, the economic sector and stakeholders of the associative mouvment in order to promote not only the values of sport but to strive for better implementation of sport in our society, as well. Thanks to our Scientific Committee, our Think tank is able to ensure that sport plays its part which in turn strengthens its place in society. Sport is truly an effective way of creating social links and has to be an answer to the challenges that society faces as a whole.

Equally, the Think tank aims to present French and European policymakers with concrete solutions so that sport may be used as a tool in the service of the common good and European identity. Sport and Citizenship’s activities mirror this process by defending civic ideals through sport such as the media coverage of women’s sport, access to sport for persons with disabilities, the fight against sedentary lifestyles…

The sport sector is often underestimated in spite of the high level of impact that it has on our lives. As such, it is one of the best ways to further social dialogue and to contribute to the building of a common European identity.
