Sport et Citoyenneté

Laid on by the Belgian EU Presidency, Flemish Minister Philippe Muyters, responsible for the coordination of the Belgian EU Presidency for Sport, decided to make a change and to give a new name of the Council in charge of Education, Youth and Culture. Now officially the Council is called the Education, Youth, Culture – including Audiovisual Affairs – and Sport Council. The addition of Sport in the name of the Council highlights the desire to develop the new EU competence.”This is a concrete result of the Belgian EU Presidency, which is not only a symbol but also a proof of the importance the EU attributes to sport. It is an honour for me to be able to chair the first ever ‘Sport Council’.” said Mr Muyters.
