Organiser of the event

The organiser of the EUROPEADA is the Federal Union of European Nationalities (FUEN).

FUEN represents the interests of the European minorities on the regional, national and in particular on the European
level. It is the largest umbrella organisation of the autochthonous, traditional minorities in Europe.

FUEN works for the preservation and promotion of the identity, language, culture, rights and traditions of the European
minorities. It is the voice of the minorities at the international organisations, in particular at the European Union and the
Council of Europe, but also at the United Nations and the OSCE.

FUEN was founded in 1949 in Paris. Nowadays, the organisation has three offices: in Flensburg, Berlin and Brussels.


The EUROPEADA 2016 was assigned to South Tyrol. The local organising committee is supported by the “Verband der Sportvereine Südtirols” (VSS).
