Kicking off the 2018 European Week of Sport


Tibor Navracsics, European Commissioner for Education, Culture, Youth and Sport, will be in Vienna tomorrow to officially launch the fourth edition of the European Week of Sport, the Commission’s #BeActive initiative to promote sport and physical activity across Europe.

As in previous years, thousands of activities will be taking place in all participating countries – which this year, for the first time, also include countries from the Western Balkans and the Eastern Partnership regions.

On 29 September, the first ever #BeActive night, a night of sport events, will happen at the same time across Europe.

Ahead of the launch, Commissioner Navracsics said: “Sport is fun and vital for our well-being. It also helps to bring people together and build communities. The European Week of Sport celebrates and promotes all of these aspects. I am looking forward to this year‘s edition which looks set to be the biggest and best yet – and I hope we can inspire many more people to make sport a part of their daily lives in the long term.”
