As a follow-up to the Tartu Call for a Healthy Lifestyle, the European Commission set up HealthyLifestyle4All, a two-year campaign running in 2021-2023 and aiming to link sport and active lifestyles with health, food and other policies.
It showcased the European Commission’s commitment to promoting healthy lifestyles for all, across generations and social groups, noting that everyone can benefit from activities that improve health and well-being.
Who took part
To promote a broad outreach, uptake and ownership of healthy lifestyles across society, the European Commission involved
- sport movements at national, European and international level
- state authorities (ministries)
- cities and regions (local governments)
- civil society organisations
in EU Member States, Erasmus+ programme countries, Eastern Partnership and Western Balkans countries.
- Increased awareness of a healthy lifestyle across all generations
- Easier access to sport, physical activity and healthy diets, with special focus on inclusion and non-discrimination to reach disadvantaged groups
- Teaming up for a holistic approach to food, health, well-being and sport
Openness to civil society
Including the sport movement and beyond, national (ministries), local and regional authorities and international bodies.
Each participating organisation or institution committed voluntarily to carry out an initiative, activity or campaign to promote healthy lifestyles for all, across generations and social groups.
Such a pledge may have consisted in an original initiative or a new addition to an already existing activity to be launched during the time of the campaign.
The ultimate aim of a pledge was to showcase a concrete contribution to HealthyLifestyle4All.
