Event bidding is the first stage in realising the ambition of bringing one of European Athletics’ events to a city in any of our 50 Member Federation countries.
Top Serbian athletes and environmentally-oriented non-governmental organisations have joined forces with the 2013 SPAR European Cross Country Championships to bring important messages about sustainability and healthy lifestyles to the country’s capital city, Belgrade.
Accountability, culture and leadership were among the recurring themes to emerge from the first-ever European Athletics High-Performance Conference, which attracted 57 participants representing 42 Member Federations to Frankfurt, Germany.
European Athletics’ three major events in the summer of 2013 demonstrated a commitment to sustainability by taking part in the Green Inspiration project. And in each case they brought a unique creative spin to activities in this area.
