On Tuesday December 1st, EuropeActive hosted the final ANTI-DIFF project partners meeting online. The project has been implemented by a selection of National Football Associations that collaborated with EuropeActive, the University of Thessaloniki and iNADO, and could count on the external support of UEFA.
The final versions of four of the main deliverables produced by partners were approved during the meeting:
On Wednesday 18th November, EuropeActive organised the Final Conference of the BLUEPRINT project entitled “Are we on our own?”. Since January 2018, the ‘Blueprint for Skills Cooperation and Employment in Active Leisure’ 3-year EU-funded project has focused on developing new skills for current and future workers in order to improve the employment prospects of young people, and to support entrepreneurship and growth across the Active Leisure sector.
EuropeActive hosted the 4th Annual FORUM for Anti-Doping in Recreational Sport on Thursday 12th November, and this year's event marked a shift away from the traditional format in order to adapt to Covid-19 restrictions.
Sector Skills Alliance for the Active Leisure‘s mission, since it was established in 2016, has been to identify sector-specific labour market needs, demand for new occupation profiles and skills needed to perform in the Outdoor and Fitness sector using scientific evidence.
Undoubtedly, the Covid-19 pandemic has changed the landscape and has obviously brought us to another reality where there are new skills needed, new needs created and new challenges for the sector to overcome.
EuropeActive is delighted to announce that its project application, Active Ageing Communities- AAC has been selected by the European Commission in the framework of the Erasmus+ Sport Programme. The project, which is in partnership with the National Fitness Associations of six EU Member States and the University of Southern Denmark will begin in January 2021 and run for 24 months.
Last week the EuropeActive team held virtual Partners meetings for three EU funded projects it is coordinating.
EuropeActive is recognised by the EU Commission as one of the most active partners of the European Week of Sport - #BeActive Campaign since its first edition in 2015. Last year the Week’s 28K events took place in 42 countries involving 15 million Europeans. The week takes place from 23 – 30 September. Read all about this year’s initiatives from EuropeActive below.
FAIR+ project partners met online on 16-17 June to discuss the two projects’ technical expert groups (TEGs) surveys. TEG1 survey will investigate the prevalence of doping in recreational sport and the psychological considerations behind its use, whereas TEG2 survey will provide a review of anti-doping education programmes and activities targeting recreational coaches by reaching out National Anti-Doping Organisations, International Federations and other sport and fitness organisations.
