Traditional games and sports: institutionalization

by Biel Pubill Soler in Meetings

Dear AEJeST family

I would like to inform you that this Thursday 29th October, through zoom at 24.00 hours, Guy Jaouen as President of ITSGA and myself as President of AEJeST are going to collaborate with the Pan-American organization of TSG. We will talk about the experience of AEJeST and ITSGA and highlight the importance of networking.

The idea is not to transform the TSG into Olympic sports, but to show the importance of having an institutional organization (statutes, rules of procedure, partnership agreements) for the protection and promotion of the TSG at the local, continental and international levels.

by Biel Pubill Soler in Meetings

Dear AEJeST family

Yesterday I received this message from Mr Yves Le Lostecque, head of the Sport Unit in the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Education, Youth, Sport and Culture. I think the positive assessment of the international seminar has contributed directly to the orientation of this very positive and optimistic message for the Traditional Games and Sports.

Summary of the AEJeST General Assembly

by Biel Pubill Soler in Meetings

Dear members of the AEJeST/ETSGA,

Today 18/07/2018 the AEJeST has lived a historical experience; for the first time ETSGA has participated in an online General Assembly (GA) through the virtual platform Blackboard Big Collaborate. I thank once again the institutional support of INEFC for having enabled a specific space in this platform for AEJeST and for helping us to carry out the GA online.

Nearly 50 participants from 11 countries; guests from the African Traditional Sports and Games Association, also the presence of a colleague from Mexico; consecutive translation into English, French and Spanish. We developed 11 points on the content sent in different emails integrating a dossier with around 125 pages of information. The GA has been democratic, it has allowed us to vote, to admit new members (individual and collective), to recognize persons and associations who are examples of good practices and to show the richness of the great family (community) that constitutes the AEJeST.

First online edition of the AEJeST General Assembly

by Biel Pubill Soler in Meetings

On 5 May  2020 we announced the suspension of the General Assembly to be held in August in Brittany due to international health alarm. We also informed you of the Council of Administration intention to hold this Assembly by videoconference.

Our legal advisor, Mr. Vicente Javaloyes, informs us that French legislation (our association is registered in France) gives validity to the convocation of the General Assembly using new technologies as long as it is held before 31 July, the final date of the state of alarm in France.

CANCELLATION OF AGM BRITTANY 2020

by Biel Pubill Soler in Festivales, Meetings

Dear colleagues:

As a result of the international health alert caused by COVID-19, the Lorient Inter-Celtic Festival has been suspended. For the same reason, the FALSAB Confederation has resigned from organising the General Assembly planned for August 2020 in Brittany, coinciding with the 90th anniversary of its foundation. Supporting FALSAB’s decision, the AEJeST Council of Administration agreed in its last meeting, to suspend definitively the AG2020 in a face-to-face way, and to consult the legal adviser the possibility of calling it on line at the end of the summer giving validity to its agreements. However, in the event that the agreements of this online GA are not valid, the CA will propose an online meeting of all the members, on an experimental basis, in order to know its functioning in case it is considered appropriate to include its future use in the Internal Regulations.

30th anniversary of the 1st major European TSG gathering and birth of the network that created AEJeST

by Guy Jaouen in Meetings, Festivales

30 years ago (in 1990) a week of meetings was organized in Brittany which turned out to be historic.

Two major events of these meetings took place at the Ti Ar Gouren Training Center, the other one in Carhaix where an important cultural association was associated to the organization.

This week was made up of three events: Anniversary International meetings of 1990 in Brittany – En

– a one-week international seminar aimed at making the point of the situation on traditional sports and games in Europe,

– an international course of traditional wrestling of Europe,

– an international festival of traditional psorts and games organized on Easter Monday, April 16, 1990 in Carhaix, with the participation of thirty delegations.

This meeting was then at the origin of many political actions by the European Parliament of which you will find attached (PDF) a summary. History of the vote of resolution by the E.P. 02 En
