    in this spirit

    I'm not a 100% sure about the meaning of the expression "in this spirit." Am I using it correctly in the sentence below?

    The declaration sent a clear political message that the social and educational aspects of sport should be taken into consideration to a greater extent in the policies of the EU. In this spirit, the EU launched an initiative called the "Year of Education through Sport" in 2004.

    Thanks.

    Yes, it sounds okay.
