2020 #BeActive Awards

8 December 2020

Get ready to #BeActive!

The #BeActive Awards competition is a central part of our annual European Week of Sport. It has been created to support projects and individuals dedicated to the promotion of sport and physical activity across Europe. Following last year's successes, the #BeActive awards will be commemorated via a fully online event on 8 December 2020. 

What are the Categories?

The three award categories are stable compared to last year:

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

The BeActive awards focus on building communities’ capacity to increase their physical activity.  They are a celebration of extraordinary people, projects and individuals that support the mission statement of the European Week of Sport: for everyone to be and stay active.  

Highlights from 2019!

Budapest offered a warm welcome by hosting an amazing Awards Gala. On 18 October 2019, #BeActive nominees, ambassadors and supporters gathered to recognise outstanding commitments to the #BeActive campaign. A high-level #BeActive jury chose a total of nine nominees based on their commitment to promoting sport and wellbeing in their communities and organisations.
