equality & SPORT action plan

Led by ENGSO Equality Within Sport (EWS) Committee

ENGSO has been a frontrunner in pushing for equality in and through sport for decades, building networks and projects, and organising events that promote equality and advocate for European sport policy that supports the efforts of the sports movement in reaching equality.

To ensure a strong commitment to reaching these objectives, the Equality Within Sport (EWS) Committee was created as a hub of expertise on equality. The mission of EWS is to activate and inspire European sport organisations to act on equality, through active advocacy work, education and awareness-raising, strengthening cooperation with ENGSO member organisations and other sport bodies. EWS advocates that everyone can (should!) practise sport safely and freely by promoting opportunities in all levels and sectors of sport. Only by reaching equality, we can use the full potential in sport.

With the objective of accomplishing this mission, ENGSO initiated a new Sport and Equality Action Plan. This plan has several phases and will be implemented thanks to the joint effort of all ENGSO bodies and members led by EWS.
