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.
Thanks once more to all members of the AEJEST who attended the seminar and also to those who actively participated, through the chat of the platform.
- The AEJeST is more and more visible at international level
- The work of the AEJeST in Europe is beginning to bear fruit.
Thank you very much to all of you.

Dear colleagues, dear friends of sport,
Our seminar on traditional sports and games is now over. We can be fully satisfied and I want to thank you all for the great success of this event.
I believe that you were able to bring much content and inspiration to the audience. A seminar with over 80 people attending is indeed a success and the willingness to keep supporting traditional sports and games in the future years is very promising.
I am very happy that we could have a careful look at the past, the present and advance some suggestions for the future of traditional sports and games. I have no doubt that we will cooperate closely in the years to come to make traditional sports and games an even more important element in our societies. As expressed in the seminar, we can count on the strong support of Commissioner Mariya Gabriel to consolidate the presence of traditional sports in the EU sport policy.
I wish you a very good day and I very much hope to meet all of you in person at the earliest occasion.
Yves Le Lostecque
