A sport world in Europe where girls and boys, women and men, have the same possibilities to participate as athletes, as decision makers, as coaches and in other roles, is a sport world we want to have.  The work in Europe has been ongoing for many, many years.

The purpose is to discuss how we make it happen – on moving towards gender equality in sport!
