Hugo Alonso – ACES Europe
ACES Europe is a non-profit association based in Brussels which annually assigns the recognitions of World Capital, European Capital, Region, City, Island, Community and Town of Sport.
According to the principles of responsibility and ethics, ACES Europe allocates these recognitions, being aware that sport is a factor of aggregation of the society, improvement in the quality of life, psycho-physical well-being and complete integration within social classes in the community.
ACES Europe awards the European Capital of Sport title, an initiative that has received the recognition of the European Commission in the White Paper (Art. 50).
In addition, ACES Europe is an official partner of the European Commission in the European Week of Sport.
Both facts suppose the recognition of the work and activity of ACES Europe. Likewise, ACES Europe is an official partnership of UNESCO, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization.
