September is going to be a month of European action for the ISF. Find out more on the European Week of Sport and on the European School Sport Day below.
The European Week of Sport promotes sport and physical activity across Europe. The Week is for everyone, regardless of age, background or fitness level. With a focus on grassroots initiatives, it will inspire Europeans to #BeActive on a regular basis and create opportunities in peoples' everyday lives to exercise more.
Since 2016, the ISF is the proud Official Education Partner of the EWOS.
The European School Sport Day(r) (ESSD) is a school day dedicated to have fun, to play together, to promote physical activity and health for everyone. It is a celebration which provides the opportunity for schools to:
- Raise the profile of physical education (PE) and sport in schools
- Create fun and enjoyment through physical activity for young people
- Promote health and wellbeing for lifelong learning
- Empower social inclusion and develop social competence amongst students.
The consortium partners include the following organisations : HSSF - Hungarian School Sport Federation, ISCA - International Sport and Culture Association, EUPEA, V4 Sport Foundation, BG BE Active Association, Youth Sport Trust and the International School Sport Federation (ISF).
As the official partner of the European Week of Sport (organised by the European Commission) for the Education theme, the ISF commits strongly to promote the European School Sport Day(r) by spreading it among the European ISF members.
