On 9 February, ANESTAPS hosted its grand oral event at the European Parliament in Strasbourg, focusing on the role of physical activity and sport in addressing European challenges. With the European elections looming, the event emphasized the importance of listening to young people and integrating their voices and ideas into the programs of various political lists, especially regarding physical activity and sports.
The event commenced with opening remarks from ANESTAPS President, Lily Rogier, emphasizing the necessity of youth engagement in the upcoming elections and the significance of the grand oral.
Two key questions; What are your proposals for a more accessible Europe that facilitates engagement and citizenship for young people? and What place should Europe give to physical and sporting activities and their challenges? were posed to the representatives from Les Écologistes, Parti Communiste Français, La France Insoumise, le Parti Socialiste, and Renaissance political parties.
The event played host to European partners along with approximately one hundred young attendees. TAFISA's Project Manager, Osazemen Aghedo, represented the organisation at the event.
The grand oral ended with the official launch of the first youth alliance in the field of sport in Europe, "European Youth Alliance in Sports Field" with one of its aims being; a better representation of young people.
Created in 1999, ANESTAPS, National Association of Students in Sciences and Techniques of Physical and Sports Activities, is today the only organization representing 150,000 young people in the field of sport and entertainment.
