The #BeActive Awards competition is an initiative from the European Commission to promote sport and physical activity across Europe. EuropeActive is a proud partner of the Week and can identify and submit projects and initiatives to encourage all of its members to participate and demonstrate how proactive the fitness and physical sector is in inspiring and motivating people to lead a healthy and active lifestyle. 
 A central element of the annual European Week of Sport, the Awards have three different categories:
The #BEACTIVE EDUCATION AWARD, which places the focus on an educational setting that can demonstrate concrete ways in which it has encouraged kids to #BeActive; the #BEACTIVE WORKPLACE AWARD, which honours a workplace that can demonstrate the specific ways in which it has encouraged and helped its employees to #BeActive; and the #BEACTIVE LOCAL HERO AWARD, which seek to reward individual achievements to motivate others to #BeActive. This award aims to recognise an individual who has worked to promote participation in sport and/or physical activity in his or her local community.
