Focus on EU and Olympic values

In 2024 we want to promote the EU values and the values of the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games through the #BeActive campaign and European Week of Sport. 

Sport has a unique power to make societies more inclusive. It contributes to education, equality, sustainability, solidarity, and democracy. Sport allows for an environment where everyone feels welcome, so join in! 

Let’s celebrate the fact that the Olympic Games take place in Europe!

Inclusion: sport is for everybody!

Sport is not just for athletes.

You can take part regardless of your fitness level or background. Sport is inclusive and does not discriminate. No matter your gender, age, abilities, religion, ethnicity, education, or sexual orientation: sport is for everyone! 

Well-being: a step toward happiness

Sport boosts self-esteem and promotes better health.

Physical activity helps personal improvement and enhances overall well-being. When you play sports, you look good and feel good!

Belonging: we are a community

Sport offers life opportunities and brings generations together. 

Everyone maintains their individuality while also sharing the EU and Olympic values of kindness, respect, and solidarity. Physical activity is a one-way ticket to socialisation and love for a more sustainable existence, both on a social and environmental level.

Opening in Budapest

The opening ceremony of the European Week of Sport 2024 will take place in Budapest, Hungary on 23 September 2024.
