Strengthening European Traditional Sports

Building a network to strengthen European traditional sports and games



In the framework of our European project SETS, Hein Comeyne was invited to represent VlaS on the EU Sport Forum in Milan from 1-2 December 2014. The forum gathered around 300 participants. Among them were leading representatives from international and European sport federations, the Olympic movement, European and national sport umbrella organisations and other sport-related organisations.

Between the plenary sessions there was an exhibition (stands with handouts, leaflets and other information) provided for the projects selected in 2013. The new EU Commissioner for Education, Culture, Youth and Sport Tibor Navracsics visited the SETS stand. Hein Comeyne explained to him the SETS project and they exchanged ideas about traditional sport and games in Europe.
