History

The CEEB is today a reality that planted its seed more than thirty years ago. Specifically, in 1977, a group of schools decided to organize, among them, the sports activity of the Barcelona schools that they generated to move away, in this way, from what the Spanish Falange, the organization in charge of organizing, had been doing until then. school competitions everywhere.

This is how the Catalan Institute of Physical Education and School Sports was born. Specifically, in 1978 it was formally constituted, made up of a handful of schools and educational centers, some of them already disappeared: Escolapios de Sarriá, Escuela Aula, Jesús-Maria Claudina Thévenet, CN Padre Poveda, AE La Jota, ETP Hoyo, FAPAC, Caspe School, La Salle Gracia, Viaró School, CN Caja de Pensiones, CN Pere Vila, Salesianos School of Sant Josep, Sagrado Coro Diputación, CN Torres y Bages, Colegio Compañía de Santa Teresa, CN Seguidilla, Bosco Meridiana, Colegio San Miquel, CN La Muñeira, CN Cardenal Cisneros, Corazonistas, EPP Diputación, Father Manyanet, Colegio-Academia Alpe, La Fragua, La Salle Bonanova, Scala Dei, CN Mio Cid, AE La Sardana, Colegio Claret, Sagrado Coro Vallvidrera, IPSI, Hogares Mundet , Santo Measure, Virolai School, Sant Josep Oriol, La Salle Congreso, Betània Patmos, Jesús Maria Sant Gervasi, San Ignacio, Luis Vives General Studies, La Salle Condal, San Gabriel, San Adrià, Avellaneda Academy, YA Girona Training School, ENB Joanot Mart orell, French Lyceum, French Schools, J. Thalabot, San Estanislao de Kostka, Lestonnac School, CN Pérez Sala, INP Federation, CE Voramar and Federation of Parents of Students of EGB. His first headquarters was in Llúria street in Barcelona, ​​in a place donated by the Carmelite Youth.

Subsequently, the ICEFEE became the CEEB (Barcelona School Sports Council) and officially registered with the recently created General Secretariat of Sports, on December 8, 1981. The vocation and purpose of the CEEB from the beginning is regular, organize and promote sports practice within the scope and school environment of the city of Barcelona, ​​prioritizing the educational and training values ​​of sports practice, beyond its competitive dynamics. Without ever resigning, the members of the CEEB, the core of what is now the Consell, have always opted for sport as an instrument of growth and transmission of values ​​for the young people of the city.

Already at the beginning of the 90s, the CEEB adapted its statutes to the Regulatory Decree of sports councils of the Generalitat. The specificity of the Barcelona School Sports Council is evident in the additional provisions of the Decree, where the CEEB is recognized as the entity that regulates extra-selective school sports in the city. It was October 8, 1990. Since then, the CEEB has grown exponentially with its last two presidents: Joan Durà and, since 2008, Jaume Mora, who, with his board of directors and his work team, has given a boost to the entity to become in relation to many levels.

The growth of the Consell and its true dimension cannot be explained without the key presence of the Foundation. It was initially conceived, in 1999, as an instrument to facilitate the presence of sponsorships and support, offering a more favorable tax treatment to entities and companies. The Barcelona Private School Sports Foundation was established on July 22, 1999. During the first months, the Foundation offered services in schools of different profiles, but with little remarkable results. It is from the year 2007 when the Foundation begins to develop socially-based sports activities, to approach highly vulnerable sectors of the city. It is sport in its purest form, as a facilitating element for the integration of children and young people, self-esteem, … as an element, in short, cultural and socialization among those who need it most. Today, the new Private Foundation for Sports and Education of Barcelona (FEEB), the Consell Foundation, is the manager and backbone of the Barcelona City Council’s Coexist Sports program, after the consistory collected the experience generated by the Foundation itself. for four years with the program A Fantastic Summer. Thanks to this program, during the summer months thousands of children without resources can practice sports in suitable environments.

A moment of absolute significance for the Consell was the change of headquarters. In September 2010, the CEEB and the Foundation left the historic premises of c. Maignon, where they carried out their activity for many years, and moves to their home today: the CEM La Mar Bella.

The agreement with the Barcelona City Council to become the operator of this magnificent facility allows us to multiply the potentialities from day one and to project, with different plans, the future of what is already the home of school sports in the city. Today, the CEM La Mar Bella has great vitality, with a lot of sports entities that carry out their activity on a regular basis. It is already a benchmark and a point of sporting polarity within Barcelona. For El Consell, it is the leap from the 20th century into the 21st century.

Two other essential links of the Consell are Can Font and ADIA. Can Font is the home of the Consell and, consequently, the home of the city schools. Located in a privileged environment, in Brunyola (Selva), it offers services to schools, groups, etc., far beyond simple accommodation. A wide program of sports and relationship with nature proposals that make it a differential framework of the wide range of offerings in the sector. Brunyola became the property, first of the CEEB and later of the Foundation, as a founding contribution, and took up the management that AE El Eixample had initially made. Brunyola has been part of the Foundation since 2009.

Finally, ADIA (Association for the Development of Children in Africa), became the NGO of the Consell in 2012. This entity, born 15 years ago in Cerdanyola del Vallès, works to implement different support programs in childhood (especially in boys and girls from 0 to 5 years old), with malnutrition problems, from the Tigray area (Ethiopia). With the entry of ADIA into the structure of the Consell, it takes on a profile of global social commitment that dimensions it in many ways and that gives it a much broader and more sensitive character of responsibility at the childhood level. ADIA is the one that the group was missing to be the one it is today.

It is clear that reality does not stop here. The Consell has projects, in some cases, certainly ambitious. The International Sociological Observatory of Sports, Solidarity Editions, etc., platforms to project our scope of action internationally and also with a broader relationship with the cultural world. These are just some of the paths that allow us to continue being El Consell.

Of course, without ever renouncing the permanent reference and objective of the Consell:

Serve sport and help ourselves so that our young people can grow up in a better framework and with more resistant foundations.

This is the philosophy that permeates the work and the permanent reference of all.
