ISF was present at the 7th edition of the Erasmus+ Sport Info Day 2020, organised by the European Commission and the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA).
The aim of participation was to collect information about the political context, future programme, simplification and Erasmus+ Sport funding opportunities in 2020.
In her opening speech, Ms Mariya Gabriel, Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth, highlighted the role of sport as a tool for the promotion of health and well-being of people. She also reminded the participants about the 2020 call and the highest budget ever - EU57 million, available for the Erasmus+ funded projects which aim to make a difference in the society.
In 2019, ISF organised an Erasmus+Sport non-profit sport event She Runs Active Girls' Lead, the first international school event to promote girls' health, gender equality and leadership through school sport, which took place in Paris, France, on 12-15 March 2019, welcoming 500 young women from 33 countries.
The project concluded with an Active Girls' Lead conference, entitled "Toward improving young women's health and leadership through sport and education", which was organised during the European Week of Sport, in Brussels, on 27 September 2019.
The second edition of the She Runs Active Girls' Lead will take place in 2021.
During the Sport Info Day, it was highlighted that one of the future directions of the Erasmus+ programme will be a more sustainable approach to sport. ISF already made a step forward towards sustainability with a She Runs "Environmental Action" in partnership with VinlyPlus.
ISF has been collaborating with the European Commission in 2017, starting with a project called Volunteering in School Sport (V2S).
