The seventh edition of the European Week of Sport will take place from 23rd-30th September 2021. This year’s theme highlights the power of physical activity to bring joy, build resilience and connect generations.
The stunning scenery of Lake Bled in Slovenia will be the background for the official opening of the European Week of Sport 2021.
For six years, the European Week of Sport has helped tackle the inactivity crisis by encouraging Europeans to embrace a healthy and active lifestyle.
Launched in 2015, the European Week of Sport was created in response to the worsening inactivity crisis. Despite sport and physical activity substantially contributing to the well-being of European citizens, the level of physical activity is currently stagnating and even declining in some countries.
This is why the European Week of Sport exists – to bring awareness of how important an active lifestyle is for everyone. Regardless of who we are and what we do, even slight increases in regular, physical activity can have a profound impact on our long-term health. The Week is designed to give people across the world a springboard into being active!
