EWSE Empowering Women
for Sport events in Europe

Networking women’s sporting events and festivals in Europe can improve their social, economic and cultural impact. It can be a boost and enhancement factor for the presence of women in sport, but it also offers good practices and experiences that can increase inclusion, accessibility and environmental sustainability by representing a factor of change and modernity. 

Pursuing gender equality in sports leadership, promoting the visibility and representation of women’s sports means consolidating an innovative networking model that brings about real inclusion and with it a regeneration from which the entire sporting phenomenon can benefit: increasing practitioners , consolidating the base, giving opportunities to everyone means creating the best and most solid foundations on which the top level can support itself.
