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 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.
The sixth edition of the European Week of Sport, which took place from the 23-30 of September was a great success and adapted exceptionally well to the difficult circumstances as imposed by C-19 which resulted in the cancellation of many planned events throughout the continent. The official figures regarding participation in the EWoS will soon be published by the EU Commission on the European Week of Sport website.
Last week the EuropeActive team held virtual Partners meetings for three EU funded projects it is coordinating.
Every year from 23-30 September, millions of Europeans from across the continent celebrate physical activity during the European Week of Sport. Even though this year’s edition will of course be quite different from previous editions due to the Covid-19 pandemic, a whole range of events and activities will be organised, on-line and off-line, in every European country to promote active lifestyles.
On Thursday 7th May, the Norwegian Football Federation organised the third partner meeting of the Anti-Doping in Football Erasmus Plus Project. The meeting was also attended by representative of the UEFA anti-doping and project departments.
The kick-off meeting of EuropeActive’s Fitness on the Move new project took place on 3 January with all 4 EU partners and on 16 April with our international partner from India.
