Sport , Health and Well-Being
Journal n°23, by the Think tank Sport and Citizenship
On July 1st, Lithuania will lead the Council and steer EU activities for the next six months.
When it presented its work programme a few days ago, Lithuania unveiled its main objectives for sport. It comes as no surprise that promoting public health through physical activity is one of its priorities. In fact this subject has never been off the European political agenda since the white paper on sport was adopted in 2007. One of the first issues of our journal dealt with this subject (March 2009) and this quarter we decided to bring you a complete update of the sport-health situation in Europe.
