You are here

Bulgaria will hold the presidency of the Council of the EU from 1st January to 30th June 2018.  The main priorities for the rotating Presidency are: young people, security and stability, the Western Balkans and eventually digital economy and skills for the future.

In the sport sector, the Bulgarian Presidency will work for promoting European values through sport, fighting against the use of doping in sport, and establishing the concept of “sport for all” as means of integration and a bridge between tradition and innovation. EuropeActive will give its contribution throughout the six months in order to implement these objectives. For instance, the EuropeActive Director of Programmes Cliff Collins will present the FAIR project, an EU-funded action on Anti-Doping in recreational sport on 24th January during the annual EU Sport Forum in Sofia.
