The European Platform for Sport Innovation, as partner of the European Commission, has been invited to the Opening Ceremony of the European Week of Sport 2019 that will be held in Espoo, Finland, on 23 September 2019. The event will be followed by a seminar on “How to make young people more active?”.

The European Week Of Sport takes place every year from 23 to 30 September. Millions of people, sports professionals, enthusiasts, experts and associations from across Europe – and beyond – come together to take part in it.

Led by the European Commission and co-organised by national coordinators and sport partners all over Europe, the Week promotes an active lifestyle through a variety of celebrations and events.

In 2019, the 5th-annual European Week of Sport will be the biggest ever, with events supported by 47 partner associations in 41 countries. The Week is for everyone – regardless of age, background or fitness level – and helps individuals, public authorities, the sport movement, civil society organisations and the private sector collaborate in the field of sport.
