EUROPE IS LISTENING TO YOUTH

Top-political leaders want to empower the youth generation

This is the key message sent by Androulla Vassiliou, European Commissioner responsible for education, youth and sport, who has given us the honour of opening this newsletter. She gave us an insight to the future of EU sport and youth policy and expressed her wish to create more synergies.

THE FORUM IN FIGURES

Sometimes Numbers are better than WORDS…

Was the Forum a success? We believe it was considering it gathered together 83 participants from 28 countries, gave the floor to 11 facilitators and 7 speakers from various backgrounds... and especially considering also the official hashtag #EYSF2012 reached over 3500 accounts on twitter!
Check it out here: #EYSF2012>>>

THIS IS IT: PICTURE GALLERY

… and sometimes pictures speak for themselves!

What else could give a big picture of the Forum better than a photo gallery? We ended up thinking this might be the best way to show you we have been active, we have been participating, we have been showcasing and we have been sharing many things in Cyprus. Enjoy the ride.

YOU MADE IT HAPPEN

Special thanks to speakers, moderators, volunteers and participants!

On behalf of the organising team and the EYSF partners, we would like to take this opportunity to thank all the people who made this Forum happen by giving their fantastic support and enthusiasm. You have been the soul of this event and the voice of Sport for All.

WHAT’S NEXT? 

The EYSF2012 legacy plan has been shaped

Yes the EYSF 2012 has just come to an end and we already want to invite you on the next journey. Why? Because we strongly believe that we need to build on the foundations that have just been laid. Participants, speakers and panellists have been inspired by EYSF2012 and have pledged to return to their local communities empowered to take action that will enhance the quality of life of young people. They also pledged to set up Future Groups aimed at spreading the word and conducting a follow up study to add extra-weight to the recommendations. You will hopefully be inspired too. Together we can unlock the potential of sport and youth for the benefit of society as a whole! Now it's time to turn vision into action.
