TAFISA Signs #HealthyLifestyle4All Pledge at EU Sport Forum

21 June 2022

On 16-17 June, the EU Sport Forum was held in Lille, France, under the theme "European Sport: fair, inclusive and fit for a sustainable future". Held every year, the EU Sport Forum is a critical platform where EU institutions, sport organisations and national governmental entities meet to exchange and discuss on sport policy.



TAFISA Vice President Denis Karakasis from Greece joined the EU Sport Forum over the two days. On 16 June, he was invited to sign the #HealthyLifestyle4All pledge on behalf of TAFISA, in the presence of EU Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth, Mariya Gabriel. The pledge reads:

"TAFISA will focus on advancing policymaking for healthy lifestyles guided by their Mission 2030 “For a Better World through Sport for All”. The aim of this initiative is to raise awareness and promote the benefits of Sport for All, build stronger partnerships and engage people of all walks of life to be physically active."
