The Council of Europa has begun a revision of the European Sports Charter that lays down the basic principles for national sports policies in member states. Human rights in sport is an important part of the process.
Backed by Erasmus+ funds, a coalition of European athlete representatives and academics will map existing structures of athlete representation and try to develop new ones over the next three years. Play the Game acts as the coordinator of the project.
A grant from Erasmus+ allows Play the Game to partner up with athletes, anti-doping bodies, and academic institutions, analysing together how to benchmark good governance in anti-doping. The two-year project starts in early 2019.
The next European Sport Management Conference will be held in in Malmö this September, focusing on the theme of ‘Managing Sport in a Changing Europe.’ Play the Game will be also one of the guests, running a special workshop on good governance.
