MOVE Week -29th September to 5th October.

MOVE Week is the flagship event of the NowWeMOVE campaign aiming to get more Europeans active in sport and physical activity. The campaign has been such a great success that the number of participants, events and volunteers has doubled every year so far. It is expected that 1,000,000 Europeans will partake in the scheduled 2,000 events in 33 countries all over Europe in 2014.

Next month the 2014 edition of Europe’s biggest community sport and physical activity event will take place. It all kicks off on the global World Heart Day on 29 September and will continue throughout the week until 5 October.

295 million Europeans never or very seldom exercise
“A recent survey showed that 295 million people or 59% of the European citizens answer that they never or very seldom exercise or do sport. With the MOVE Week we will connect and include citizens from all over Europe. We want to illustrate the variety of local initiatives celebrating active lifestyles, sport and physical activity to help people start moving,” says Mogens Kirkeby, President of ISCA, the organisation behind MOVE Week.

The events are as diverse as trail running in the Romanian mountains, orienteering in Poland, a treasure hunt in Malta, scuba diving in Bulgaria, night bike riding in Greece and a family march as far away as the French overseas department of Guadeloupe in the Caribbean.
