November 30, 2014

After the EA-UNESCO Young Leaders Forum 2014, a group of 10 individuals decided to carry on some of the activities triggered in Zurich, Switzerland. The main objective is to actively contribute to the development of the Athletics Community, by volunteering our time in order to implement a series of initiatives organized in three main areas:

A) UNESCO Anti-Doping Fund. Following Slovenian and Spanish initiative, this group has the intention of applying for an international project under UNESCO's budgetary line.

B) ERASMUS+ Programme, funded by European Commission, provides a great funding opportunity for young leaders. More specifically, the Future Group intends to apply for a Key Action 1, Training Course for young people and youth workers.

C) Communication and Visibility. Using the existing social media (this website, Facebook page, and Twitter) the Future Group members will foster the sharing of projects, relevant news and activities in order to increase the visibility of the platform.
