Physical exercise plays a big part for our health and well-being, however the level of physical activity is currently insufficient and even in decline in some European countries.
The European Week of Sport is the initiative launched in 2015 by the European Commission to promote sport and physical activity across Europe to all citizens, regardless of age, background or fitness level.
The #BeActive campaign brings together all EU Member States to create opportunities in peoples’ everyday lives to exercise more and to inspire Europeans to #BeActive on a regular basis.
The 3rd edition of the European Week of Sport took place from 23rd to 30th September 2017 and moved 12 million participants in 32 countries, with 34 000 events.
Wellness Foundation is an official partner of the European Week of Sport and coordinates many initiatives both in the Wellness Valley (the Romagna region) and across Italy.
For the third year running, in 2017 Wellness Foundation has offered its support to promote the important message of living an active life for staying healthy. A whole host of sports events and initiatives, free outdoor activities and open days were organized in collaboration with a number of fitness centres and sports associations in the Italian cities, providing plenty of opportunities for thousands of adults and children to feel the benefits that physical activity can have on the body and well-being.
