Minister for Sport Lena Adelsohn Liljeroth visits Idrottens hus in Uppsala
Minister for Sport Lena Adelsohn Liljeroth visited Idrottens hus in Uppsala today to find out about the 2013 Uppland Boost for Sport on the basis of its priority areas:
- recruitment of children and young people;
- improved access to facilities and sports environments; and
The Boost for Sport is intended to strengthen and develop sports for children and young people so that more girls and boys choose to take part in sports in associations in which activities are run on the basis of the sporting world's own ideas programme 'Sports want to'. One prerequisite for sports associations to receive support from the Boost for Sport is that they comply with the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. This means that the initiatives carried out as part of the Boost for Sport must have a child rights perspective.

"Sports need supporters," says Minister for Culture Lena Adelsohn Liljeroth. "They give clubs soul and enhance the experience for the other spectators. But violence and vandalism must never be tolerated. We have created the legislation and the clubs have taken greater responsibility for public order and safety, but we need to further improve certain tools," adds Ms Adelsohn Liljeroth.
