On October 23, 2020, at the invitation of Zlatka Atanasova – a philosophy teacher and in compliance with anti-epidemic measures, the Bulgarian sports development association introduced to the 12th grade students from the 57 School "St. Naum Ohridski” the policies of the European Union in the field of sports. The students got acquainted with the basic regulations in the sector, the importance and priorities of sport, the activities implemented so far after creating the prerequisites for a common European sports policy, as well as future ones planned in the next Multiannual Financial Framework of the Union 2021 – 2027. The opportunities that the Erasmus+ Program opens up for future sports professionals and the challenges that the sports sector faces such as: the fight against doping and sports results manipulation, the prevention of corruption and the promotion of good governance, were also presented.
The future sports leaders were also acquainted with the results of the Good Governance in Sport project /#GoodGovernanceSport/, coordinated by the Bulgarian sports development association, which aims to find a way to analyze, collect and promote good practices for appropriate visibility of decisions made, responsible bodies and transparency of sports organizations in Europe and project partner countries. Until this moment, an extensive survey of the websites of 56 sports organizations at national and European level has been carried out in order to determine the extent to which sports structures ensure transparency of decisions and financial operations and online training for sports professionals, which aims to introduce them to the basic principles of good governance. Full information on the survey data and online training is available on the project website www.eusport.org/GoodGovernance (in English).
