The European Week of Sport aims to promote sport and physical activity across Europe. The Week is for everyone, regardless of age, background or fitness level. This week aims to inspire Europeans to #BeActive on a regular basis and create opportunities in peoples’ everyday lives to exercise more. To get Europe moving in a fun way, a contest will be held with sportive challenges to complete. The #BeActive challenges (hereafter referred to as the “contest”) are organised by the European Commission (EC).

The European Commission commissioned this particular study to evaluate existing (formal and non-formal) training and education schemes for coaches in view of their gender equality elements, to evaluate their modules on gender equality and to identify good practices with regards to accessibility for women.

This evaluation report is structured around three pillars: events and activities organised during the Week, the outcome of the #BeActive communication campaign, and working structures and methods put in place in the run-up to and during the Week.
The aim of this study is to provide an analytical overview of the types of sports related projects and interventions used to support the social inclusion of migrants and to identify best practice in their design, implementation and measurement.
This study provides practical information and advice to sport organisations and others who may be considering using the European Structural and Investment Funds to support sport-based projects.
The study was launched in December 2014 and was carried out by a consortium of researchers led by the Institut für Sportwissenschaft und Sport of the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg. An executive summary is also available.
