SUSTAINABLE DEMOCRATIC SOCIETIES

… Democratic citizenship through education, culture and youth policies – European Centre for Modern Languages

Enlarged Partial Agreement

Created in 1994

31 members


The European Centre for Modern Languages (ECML) is an enlarged partial agreement with the objective to promote excellence and innovation in language education practice.

It does this through a 4-year programme comprising a series of projects organised in cooperation with multipliers in language education. The Centre cooperates actively with other international organisations and with civil society in the form of the Professional Network Forum.

The 2012-2015 programme entitled Learning through Languages is based upon an inclusive approach to plurilingual and intercultural education and will focus on the right of the learner to good quality language education. It will also assist member states in applying key instruments developed by the Language Policy Division, as well as addressing regional and minority language issues related to the work of the European Charter for Regional or Minority Languages.

The programme builds upon the Centre’s previous work, widening the scope of its activities to move beyond the foreign language classroom and include all linguistic abilities and the needs of all groups of learners. It aims to achieve significant impact on learning by:

· developing practical tools and materials either directly for the use of learners or for teachers, teacher educators and/or other actors in the field of education;
· communicating and disseminating results of ongoing and completed ECML projects to key stakeholders.

In both years, the Centre will directly involve approximately 1,000 educational professionals as well as offering a wide range of consultancy services.

The Centre is regarded as a network leader and primary reference point in its domain of work. Since its establishment it has published over 70 products which are available free of charge to the general public.

31 members: Albania, Andorra, Armenia, Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Iceland, Ireland, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Montenegro, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland‚ and “The former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia”.

SUSTAINABLE DEMOCRATIC SOCIETIES

… Sport and Ethics – Enlarged Partial Agreement on Sport (EPAS)

Enlarged Partial Agreement

Created in 2007

33 members


The Enlarged Partial Agreement on Sport (EPAS) was established in 2007, in order to give fresh momentum to pan-European sports co-operation and address the current challenges facing sport in Europe – building on more than 30 years of activity in the field.

EPAS provides a platform for intergovernmental sports co-operation between the public authorities of member states of the agreement. EPAS also encourages dialogue between public authorities, sports federations and NGOs. This contributes to better governance, with the aim of making sport healthier and fairer, and ensuring that it conforms to high ethical standards.

EPAS aims to promote the development of sport in modern society, while emphasising its positive values. It develops policies and standards, monitors them and helps with capacity building and the exchange of good practice. It uses Council of Europe sports standards such as the European Sports Charter, the Code of Sports Ethics, the European Convention on Spectator Violence and the Anti-Doping Convention as the basis for drawing up its own strategies. Its activities are developed in line with political priorities expressed at ministerial meetings.

34 members: Albania, Andorra, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Georgia, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Monaco, Morocco, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Russian Federation, San Marino, Serbia, Slovenia, Spain, Switzerland and "The former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia".

19 non-governmental partners: European Fair Play Movement (EFPM), European Gay & Lesbian Sport Federation (EGLSF), European Judo Union (EJU), European Non-Governmental Sports Organisation(ENGSO), European Olympic Committees (EOC), European Paralympic Committee (EPC), European Rugby Association(FIRA-AER), European Sport For All Network (ESFAN-TAFISA), European Physical Education Association (EUPEA), European Women and Sport (EWS), Federation of International Amateur Sambo (FIAS), Homeless World Cup Foundation, International Basketball Federation Europe(FIBA-Europe), International Council of Sports Science and Physical Education (ICSSPE), International Sport and Culture Association (ISCA), International Sports Federations (SportAccord), Peace and Sport Organisation, Sport and Citizenship, Union of European Football Associations (UEFA).

Expected results

Performance indicators

Expected result 1

New challenges to sport ethics are addressed through standard setting, assistance activities and promotional measures.

2012: Existing standards are monitored. A feasibility study on a possible convention on the fight against manipulation of sports results (“match-fixing”) is submitted to the CM.

2013: Existing standards are monitored. Subject to CM approval to prepare a new convention, a draft is submitted to the Governing Board (GB) of EPAS for endorsement. A new draft recommendation is submitted for the approval to the GB.

Expected result 2

Diversity in and through sport is promoted by co-operation activities and EPAS public authorities are able to unite their forces with other authorities (children protection, justice, gender equality) to promote a political standard related to diversity in sport.

2012-13: Public authorities from at least 75% of EPAS member states attend at least 1 activity on diversity.

2 practical handbooks are published.

3 training activities are organised at the request of member states.

Expected result 3

Partnership with the EU in the field of sport to ensure complementarity of activities is promoted and EPAS supports the Commission’s initiatives in the field of sport.

2012-13: A regular co-ordination meeting is established, involving representatives of inter-governmental and parliamentary bodies. A joint study of the CoE and the EU is published and a joint initiative is promoted.

An agreement is found on the co-ordination of dates and venues of ministerial meetings. Regular participation to key meetings (ministerial conferences, meetings of GB and working groups) is agreed and implemented. The new draft EU Sports programme includes a section on inter-institutional co-operation with the CoE. A formal project is submitted to the Commission by EPAS.

All relevant changes will be reflected in Table 1 of the draft Programme and Budget 2012-2013 (page 21).

Voluntary contributions are a significant element of the resources of the Council of Europe and are subject to continuous developments. At the time of the preparation of the draft Programme and Budget 2012-2013 distributed on 31 August 2011 they could not be fully estimated. The information contained in the draft was updated as of 1 August 2011.
