On Tuesday January 15th, EuropeActive was invited to the French Embassy in brussels to participate in a debate about Wellness and the importance of physical activity. After a short introduction and welcome from the French Ambassador Claude-France Arnould, the panellists introduced their work on physical activity promotion. Yves Le Lostecque, representing the European Commission, highlighted the success of last year’s edition of the European Week of Sport. The Commission is very pleased with the increase in the number of events and participants, and the strong buy in from the member states. However, Mr. LeLostecque also stressed that the European Week of Sport is only a small part of a much bigger effort to get people to be more active.
