Keeping up with ENGSO Youth: we have news!
A lot has happened in the past few months.
At the beginning of April, ENGSO Youth members held a second committee meeting of the year, which was held as an online conference call, to discuss the progress of the organisation, 2020-2023 strategy, new secretariat, postponement of the assembly, and the development of the projects, Young Delegates programme and the working groups.
ENGSO Youth committee has decided to move the secretariat to a new country. Therefore we would like to express our special appreciation to the Hungarian Competitive Sports Federation and our former secretary/operations manager Dora for supporting us throughout the past two years. The new secretariat will be announced in the upcoming weeks.
We have also been busy finalizing the new ENGSO Youth strategy 2020 – 2023. The document will be available on the website. In the meantime, you can have a look at our Standing Orders and ENGSO Statutes.
As mentioned before, the annual ENGSO Youth Assembly, which was supposed to take place in the Faroe Islands, is postponed. The new date and location will be announced soon.
The 2020 Young Delegates meeting, with a topic of empowering refugees through sport in Europe and scheduled to be held in Vilnius, Lithuania, is still planned for August.
With the help of our Young Delegates, we have joined the #BeActiveAtHome campaign initiated by the European Commission and its sport unit. The aim of the campaign is to keep Europeans moving while staying at home.
Did you know that the World Health Organization recommends at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity per week? See how team ENGSO youth is following the recommendations and staying active while at home.
April 21, 2020, was the deadline for the submission of the Erasmus+ Sport projects. ENGSO Youth has submitted a new proposal. We are happy to share the news that mental health through sport and physical activity will be one of the key topics and priorities ENGSO Youth will address in the upcoming year.
Besides the new project proposal, we are also leading the Sport for Sustainable Development (SSD) and SK4YS, and partnering in EYVOL, MONITOR, SWinG and SCforH projects. Together with our partners from Japan, Senegal and Europe we have started working on the SDG workshop which is one of the key activities included in the SSD project. The collection and classification of the SK4YS good practices is coming to an end. The next step is the finalization of the educational module.
