Ahead of his visit to Belgrade on 27 September to participate in the “High Level Round Table on Healthy Lifestyle Beyond Borders”, European Commissioner for Education, Culture, Youth and Sport Tibor Navracsics said:
“Sport is fun and vital for your well-being. It also brings people from different cultures and backgrounds together which is key in breaking down barriers and building cohesive societies. The European Week of Sport highlights and promotes this unique potential of sport, encouraging people to #BeActive in the long term. I am very proud to welcome Serbia and other countries form the Western Balkans and the Eastern Partnership region to this initiative this year. I am confident that this will help forge stronger links between and within the participating countries. And I am looking forward to experiencing first-hand how Serbia celebrates sport during my visit on 27 September.”
