The European Commission is organising a seminar on the promotion of healthy lifestyles, to take stock of progress made during the two years since the Tartu Call was launched.

The Seminar will explore how the European Commission, sport organisations, associations and civil society have responded to the Tartu Call.  The event will– also emphasise the Commission’s desire to continue to promote healthy lifestyles as part of its policy initiatives, actions and overall agenda..

The event will take place 19 June 2019 in Brussels, and will benefit from the participation of Tibor Navracsics, Commissioner for Education, Culture, Youth and Sport; Vytenis Andriukaitis, Commissioner for Health and Food Safety; and Phil Hogan, Commissioner for Agriculture and Rural Development – who launched the call during the opening ceremonies of the 2017 European Week of Sport in Tartu (Estonia).  The call underlines a list of joint actions that are essential to promoting healthy lifestyles, and highlights the Commission’s firm commitment to enhance cooperation between the European institutions and Member States within the health, sports, education and food sectors.

A livestream of the seminar will be available the day of the event.
