Relating through leisure



"The Council of Europe has today taken the political lead in the fight against match-fixing. I hope the EU Institutions will follow."
Michel Platini, UEFA President, France

Sport

The Council of Europe promotes diversity in and through sport to enhance social integration, tolerance and understanding. It focuses on: including women, ethnic minorities and people with disabilities and combating homophobia. The Organisation promotes fair play and works towards making the governance of sport more transparent, by tackling doping, spectator violence and match-fixing.

Eurimages (cinema)

Eurimages promotes European cinema by supporting the co-production, distribution and exhibition of cinematographic works. Set up in 1988, the Fund has awarded over €474 million to over 1,500 European films. More than 60 films supported by Eurimages have won prestigious awards: Césars, Palmes d’Or, Oscars, Lions d’Or.

European Heritage Days

Every September, 50 countries take part in European Heritage Days, opening historic buildings normally closed to the public. Cultural events highlight local skills and traditions, architecture and works of art, to unite citizens, regardless of differences in culture and language. The European Union has joined the Council of Europe in celebrating these Days.
