The Maltese Presidency of the EU is well underway. For this important historical milestone, the Ministry for Education entrusted SportMalta, the national entity for sport in leading the sport agenda for these six months. SportMalta has in its mission to promote and develop sport towards a more healthy, inclusive and successful Malta, thus the priority chosen for the six months is for sport to act as a platform for social inclusion through volunteering.
On these lines Malta is in the final stages of submitting the council conclusion on social inclusion through volunteering.  At the same time Malta is leading the EU Member States in the drafting of the new EU Work Plan for sport.
