In close collaboration with EuropeActive’s Inclusion Advisory Group, EuropeActive is thrilled to share with members and industry stakeholders a selection of awareness dates that are committed to be celebrated throughout 2023!
Outreach and impact will be maximized by pairing these dates with EuropeActive’s Healthy Hour pledge, as part of the European Commission’s #HealthyLifestyle4All campaign. Via social media campaigns, the idea is to raise awareness around the manyfold benefits of physical activity on individual health, but also on society. By sharing publications and starting discussions on social media, the aim of this initiative is also to raise awareness around inclusion and the role physical activity must endorse through this lens.
Building on the success of EuropeActive’s 2022 Pride Month celebration, EuropeActive has committed to acknowledging and celebrating the following awareness dates throughout 2023:
- International Women’s Day (8th March)
- European Mental Health Week (9-15 May 2023)
- Pride Month (June)
- International Day of the Older Persons (1st October)
- International Day of Persons with Disabilities (3rd December)
EuropeActive keenly invites members and stakeholders to reach out and share their own activities, initiatives, and ideas on these topics (and others!), as we firmly believe in supporting the fitness and physical activity ecosystem’s achievements in making more people, more active, more often in an inclusive and welcoming manner.
