Let’s start July highlighting EU Youth Goal 1️⃣: Connecting EU with Youth 🇪🇺!What does it mean? 🤔▶It aims to make the EU more accessible, more understandable, less complex for young people who are struggling understanding the functioning of the EU and its institutions, but also its values and principles.It appears that loads of young people struggle to feel connected to the EU which seems far and opaque.Our Active Focus Group of European coaches, sports researchers, athletes and volunteers highlighted those issues. The biggest barriers of European Policies and Youth Goals were, according to the group, the following : 👉 Lack of information👉 Too Difficult Language : “ The language is not adapted to our sports participants, too complex and technical."👉 Economic barriers👉 Bureaucratic issue for taking in EU-programmes✋So how does the EU plan to rectify it ? First of all, let's see the official definition of this goal: " An increasing number of young people lack trust in the EU, encounter difficulties in understanding its principles, values, and functioning. Democratic deficits in EU processes have also been identified as one of the reasons for rising euroscepticism among young people. "And to do so, a series of measures have been taken: 👉 Guarantee meaningful youth involvement and dialogue in all stages of EU decision making👉 Ensure equal access to quality impartial and youth-friendly information about the EU👉 Introduce and increase education about Europe👉 Guarantee fair representation of all member states in political and administrative EU bodies👉 Increase the budget and the impact of the EU youth programmes.👉 Address the democratic deficit, lack of transparency and visibility to increase trustHow do you think the EU can connect and engage with young people?#ActiveinSport #youth #active #sport #inclusion #europeGEA Coop Sociale FARE network Assist - Associazione Nazionale Atlete KMOP Jugend- & Kulturprojekt e.V. @Coop DOTS European Network of Sport Education #EYY2022 ...

On this very hot period in Europe and beyond, it seems appropriate to talk about two important public campaigns happening today. 🔥 On this 16th June, our friends in the UK, are mobilising for the #CleanAirDay with a lot of events organised throughout the country to inform on the effects and ways to reduce air pollution. 🔥 Today, we are also celebrating World Refill Day, a global public awareness campaign initiated by the UK-based NGO City to Sea and supported by the European NGO’s coalition movement #wechoosetoreuse and @breakfreefromplastic . This 🌏World Day was created to normalise refilling and re-using and help people to reduce waste in their daily lives.✊ As individuals and actors in the sport movement, we all have a role to play in reducing our waste, be plastic-free and constructing a sustainable environment. You will soon be able to access our checklist to organise a sustainable sport event, but here are already some tips : 🍽Organise catering without disposable items🥛 Invite participants to bring their own reusable bottle and cup🙌 Organise recycling of rubbish🚴‍♂️🚶‍♀️Make the place accessible by bike or on foot🚰 Put up information boards, especially on "don't waste water", when taking a drink break or showering after training.🗣 Organize slogans to pitch to fans to raise awareness about environmental sustainabilityWhat are your ideas to reduce waste and contamination ? #ActiveinSport #youth #active #sport #inclusion #europeGEA Coop Sociale FARE network Assist - Associazione Nazionale Atlete KMOP Jugend- & Kulturprojekt e.V. @Coop DOTS European Network of Sport Education ...
