Call: Be Active Awards 2019


    The initiative

    The European Commission well underlines the importance of sport and physical activity. It is the reason why, for the period 2014-20, Erasmus+ Sport Activities were implemented and why, since 2017, it launched a call for the #BeActive Award.

    The competition, announced in the framework of the European Week of Sport, aims at supporting projects and individuals dedicated to the promotion of sport and physical activity across Europe.

    The #BeActive Awards will be handed by the Commissioner Navracsics in Budapest (2019 European Capital of Sport) on 18 October 2019.

    How does it work

    The contest is open to the National Coordinating Bodies (NCBs) and Partners of the European Week of Sport (EWoS).


    There are three kinds of activity:

    • #BeActive Education Award
    • #BeActive Workplace Award
    • #BeActive Local Hero Award

    For a detailed description of the three possibilities, please have a look at the information sheet.
