"Social dialogue in the sport and active leisure sector: IMPLEMENT, AFFILIATE, CREATE - IMPACT project”

Using the results of both the RBT project ("Reinforce the representativeness of the social partners in the sport sector: Row the BoaT project", 2006) and the CC-project (“Moving forward towards European social dialogue in the sport sector: Content and Contact project”, 2008), the IMPACT project aimed to further reinforce the representativeness of EASE while continuing to prepare with UNI Europa Sport the official European social dialogue in the sport and active leisure sector, including the sub-sectors not-for-profit sport, active leisure and professional sport, in parallel with what is developed in professional football.

Project structure and specific objectives


The project activities were developed through 3 levels of social dialogue and the 3 identified sub-sectors:
- Level 1: European social dialogue
- Level 2: Social dialogue at national level but NO affiliation to EASE
- Level 3: NO social dialogue at national level & NO affiliation to EASE

Each of the level followed one specific objective:
- Objective Level 1: to continue to prepare with UNI Europa Sport for the official European social dialogue in the sport and active leisure sector as a follow-up of the CC-project
- Objective Level 2: to affiliate to EASE national and European employers' organisations identified through the RBT and CC projects
- Objective Level 3: to initiate the creation of national employers' organisations

Partnership


- CoSMoS (project leader)
Because of its experience at the national level, the CoSMoS (“Conseil Social du Mouvement Sportif”) – the French sport employers' organisation – has understood the added value of European social dialogue and supported the work of EASE through the IMPACT project. The CoSMoS led the IMPACT project and delegated the daily implementation to EASE.

- EASE (executive partner)

- Arbetsgivaralliansen, the Swedish sport employers' organisation and Full Member of EASE in charge of the professional sport part of the level 2
- SkillsActive, the English Full Member of EASE responsible for the active leisure part of the level 2
- the WOS, the Dutch Full Member of EASE responsible for the level 3 of the project

The following organisations also supported the project:
- UNI Europa Sport,
- EU Athletes (European Elite Athletes Association),
- EOC EU Office (the representation of the European Olympic Committees in Brussels),
- the French National Olympic Committee (CNOSF),
- the Dutch National Olympic Committee (NOC*NSF).
