CEV School Project in the spotlight at EU Sport Forum

CEV Senior Vice-President Renato Arena attended last week the annual EU Sport Forum, this time held in Bucharest, Romania. Mr Arena was one of five speakers of the panel addressing the attendees on a truly important subject, i.e. ‘How can schools better contribute to the promotion of healthy lifestyles?’  

The CEV Senior Vice-President emphasised the role and importance of the Erasmus + funded CEV School Project, which aims at enhancing physical activity among children in Europe by introducing a new concept of the Volleyball game at school, with a focus on growing the game at the grassroots level.

The project has already been an extremely successful one with activities carried out in countries as diverse as Armenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Faroe Islands, F.Y.R. of Macedonia, Ireland, Kosovo, Montenegro, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Slovenia – with more due to follow.  

Mr Arena was one of five speakers along with Nicole Pisani from Chefs in Schools, Wojciech Kalamarz, Head of Health determinants and International Relations Unit, DG SANTE, European Commission, Otylia Jedrzejczak, Polish Olympic champion, and Kaisa Blomberg, teacher at Jyränkö school from Heinola, Finland.

The EU Sport Forum was a truly unique opportunity to provide further exposure to the leading and pioneering role played by the CEV with regard to the promotion of a healthy lifestyle among school pupils and their involvement in physical activity, while spreading the core values that Volleyball stands out for such as teamwork, mutual respect and fair play.
