The competition was created to support projects and individuals dedicated to the promotion of sport and physical activity across Europe. The awards remind us of how sport can help us build healthier, more vibrant and physically fit communities. They are also a celebration of some amazing people, projects and individuals who have gone that extra mile to support The Week’s mission statement: for everyone to get fit and #BeActive!

We’re therefore ecstatic to announce the opening of the 2020 edition of the #BeActive awards to all National Coordinating Bodies (NCBs) for applications!

The deadline 24th July. This year, applications to all categories must now be submitted directly by NCBs, who can be found via the links on The Week’s ‘countries pages (link).

The three award categories are identical to last year, supporting the most active in the following three categories:

  • the #BeActive Education Award
  • the #BeActive Workplace Award
  • the #BeActive Local Hero Award

The awards serve as a wonderful reminder of how everyone can help to build a fit, healthy and collaborative world through sport. Support the Week of Sport and your community – #BeActive!
