The #BeActive awards were created to support projects and individuals that are dedicated to promoting sport and physical activity across Europe.

The awards have 4 categories 

  • #BeActive Education Award

This award aims to demonstrate how education can encourage kids to #BeActive outside the typical sport/physical activity taking place in their normal school day. This may include additional activities, scheduling days outside of class that focus on sport, after-school activities and other creative solutions that build an active education environment.

  • #BeActive Workplace Award

This award celebrates exemplary activities in the workplace that encourage employees to #BeActive. This may include setting up a staff taskforce responsible for promoting physical activity, provision of showers for cycling/running commuters, standing meetings, lunchtime walks and other creative solutions to form an active working environment.

  • #BeActive Local Hero Award

This award honours individual achievement in motivating others to #BeActive. The award recognises individuals who have worked consistently to promote participation in sport and/or physical activity in their local community.

  • #BeActive Across Generation Award (NEW)

This award honours projects promoting inter-generational sport, celebrating the fact that everyone can benefit from activities that improve health and well-being. Projects may include promoting activities for, raising awareness among or easing access to physical activities for all generations.
