The constructive meeting enabled the President of the EOEE Athletes' Committee, Gerd Kanter, who participated remotely, and the President of the IOC Athletes' Committee, Emma Terho, to present their participation, on behalf of European athletes, in the Conference on the Future of Europe in the form of recommendations on the priorities of European sport in the coming years.

The Conference on the Future of Europe is a major consultation of citizens developed by the EU to listen to the expectations and ideas of its citizens about its future priorities. In this context, the European Olympic Movement, and in particular its athletes, took the opportunity for a partnership with the leadership of the European Commission.
