Parkour Earth acknowledges the important role that the European Commission plays in sport and actively support the 2017 European Week of Sport.
We share the values of the #BEACTIVE campaign and are committed to promoting the importance of physical activity and healthy lifestyles for all, particularly for younger generations. We have no doubt that the activities will help raise awareness about the issues at hand and help foster the much needed cultural change, from grassroots up.
Parkour Earth share the objectives that underpin this inspiring initiative and render our support to the European Commission. As a result, we have teamed up with the Sport Integrity Global Alliance (SIGA), as well as our member National Federations in Europe and intend to use the power of social media to engage people and promote, with a series of initiatives, the positive role of sport including Parkour for the benefit of all European citizens.
About the European Week of Sport (EWoS);
We believe it is time to usher sport into a new era where good governance and integrity are the number one priorities. The 2017 European Week of Sport is a great opportunity to work towards achieving this.
The European Week of Sport 2017 will take place this year between 23rd – 30th September and aims to support and promote the benefits of an active lifestyle, via the #BeActive message.
The European Week of Sport aims to promote sport and physical activity across Europe, with 2017 seeing 32 countries participating for the third edition of the programme.
The week is for everyone, regardless of age, background or fitness level. With a focus on grassroots initiatives, it will inspire Europeans to #BeActive on a regular basis and create opportunities in people’s everyday lives to be healthier and happier through the involvement of physical activity.
In 2016, the European Week of Sport saw more than 15,000 activities delivered across 35 European partners, resulting in 10 million active participants. For 2017 European Week of Sport will continue to inspire people to #BeActive and aims to increase its impact on last year’s outcomes.
