Next 23 September in Bled (Slovenia), EU Commissioner Gabriel will open the invitation for the contribution of pledges by officially launching “HealthyLifestyle4All” in conjunction with the European Week of Sport. EPSI will attend the opening.
Following the Tartu Call for a Healthy Lifestyle, HL4A is a two-year campaign by the EU Commission aimed at promoting a healthy lifestyle across generations and social groups. It is driven by the knowledge that everyone can benefit from activities that improve health and well-being.
To increase uptake, share ownership and broaden its outreach, the European Commission is inviting co-creators to help design the HL4A initiative. Representatives of sport organisations, civil society, international, national, regional and local authorities, are invited to join in the co-creation of the initiative to promote healthy lifestyles amongst generations and across social groups.
There are three pillars to the HealthyLifestyle4All initiative
- awareness – improved awareness of healthy lifestyles across all generations
- access – easier access to sport, physical activity and healthy diets. HL4A has a special focus on inclusion and non-discrimination to reach disadvantaged groups
- holistic approach – HL4A is about teaming up in an holistic approach to food, health, well-being and sport
