"Sport for Everyone" was launched

Paris, 10-12 September 2015

The kick-off meeting of Sport for Everyone took place from the 10th to the 12th of September 2015 in Paris. 6 NOCs, National Olympic Committees of Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Italy, Lithuania, Portugal, Spain and France and one think tank “Sport and Citizenship” took part in the project. The aim of this project is to promote grassroots sports, and more specifically to organise events in the framework of the European week of Sport. To achieve it, the consortium will identify good practices implemented in these 6 countries in this field.

During these two days, the goals, the running of the project and the distribution of roles between the partners were defined. The representatives of the NOCs also attended activities linked to the “Sentez-vous Sport” event, whose aim is to promote grassroots sports in France. On Thursday the 10th, all of them participated in the European Conference Sport and Companies. At this occasion, the results of the Goodwill Management study were presented and show how the practice of sport activities by the employees can benefit the profitability of the company. On Saturday 12, they visited an event labelled “Sentez-vous Sport” at the City Hall of the 17th district where the inhabitants could try 3 sports (karate, fencing & French boxing).

The next seminar will be held in November 2015 in Paris and will focus on the topic “Sport and Companies”.

Denis Masseglia, the President of the CNOSF, welcomed the European partners






The Seminar « Sport and Companies » is coming soon

Paris, 24-25 November 2015

The European consortium “Sport for Everyone”, composed of 6 partners (5 NCO and 1 think tank), is working on the first thematic Seminar. The seminar, taking place from the 24th to the 25th of November in Paris, will focus on the topic “Sport and Companies”.

During a day and a half, experts will share their knowledge and experience in the promotion of sport and physical activities at the workplace. A large variety of organisations embodying the private, the academic, as well as the non-profit sector will explain how they encourage the practice of sport in the life of a company. For instance, the following initiatives will be presented: the European Company Sport Games in Riccione (Italy), awareness actions to promote physical activities (Belgium), and the questionnaire on the companies' sportiveness (France). The participants will also attend the “Awards Ceremony of Sentez-vous Sport” and will finally visit the Health and Sport Center “Mon Stade”.

The aim is to identify good practices all over Europe in the field “Sport and Companies”, to later implement them in the framework of the European Week of Sport (EWoS). At the end of the project, in December 2016, all the good practices will be compiled in the “Handbook for the organisation of the EWoS”.




The workplace can become a major setting to do sport in Europe!

Paris, 24-25 November 2015

After the kick-off meeting of last September, the project team of "Sport for Everyone" met again in Paris from the 24th to the 25th of November for the first thematic seminar in the field of "Sport and Companies". 5 NOCs (Portugal, France, Italy, Lithuania, F.Y.R.Macedonia) and the think tank Sport and Citizenship decided to exchange good practices promoting the practice of sport and physical activities (SPA) at the workplace. As Sport at the workplace is part of the European Week of Sport (EWoS), it is interesting to discover how this issue is dealt with in Europe.

During two days, experts and organisations working in this field shared their knowledge and experiences. At this occasion, events, awareness campaigns, labels and tools were presented such as the European Corporate Games in Riccione (Itlay), the awareness campaign to be active by Energy Lab (Belgium), and the questionnaire on the sportiveness of a company by QYD CATHAY SAS (France).

Two key moments also enriched the seminar: the participation of the Awards Ceremony of "Sentez-vous Sport” and the visit of "Mon Stade". The Awards of "Sentez-vous Sport" enable to award companies integrating sport in their HR strategy. The seminar ended up with the visit of the sport and medical center "Mon Stade" whose concept could be summed up as follows: “everyone deserves a champion sport programme” regardless of one's physical condition.

Thanks to these fruitful exchanges, the consortium identified good practices which will be compiled at the end of the project in the Handbook for the organisation of the European Week of Sport. The second thematic seminar, taking place in March 2016 in Rome, will focus on “Sport and Education”.

During the 2 last thematic Seminars « Sport and Companies » and « Sport and Education », innovative initiatives were presented by the partners (NOCs of Portugal, Italy, France, Lithuania and the think tank Sport&Citizenship) and by external organisations.

To support further its partner NOCs, the leader organisation, the CNOSF, visited on the 11th and 12th of May the NOC of the Republic of Macedonia. The 2 representatives of the CNOSF as well as the ones of the host NOC attended the sport event the Games of the NOC of the Republic of Macedonia in Kumanovo where children from 6 to 15 years old compete in several sport disciplines (football, atletics, basket). The visit also led to fruitful discussions about the involvement of the NOC in the 2nd edition of the EWoS. Other 1-to-1 meetings will be organised in Lisbon and Vilnius.

The 4th Seminar « Key factors for the success of the EWoS » will take place from the 8th to the 10th of June in the European capital.

Let's make the Olympic movement be part of the EWoS

Brussels, 8-10th June 2016

After the 2 last thematic Seminars « Sport and Companies » and « Sport and Education », the team of the Erasmus + co-funded project “Sport for Everyone” met from the 8 to the 10th of June in Brussels. The Seminar focuses on the key factors for the organisation of the European Week of Sport (EWoS).

This 3-day seminar enabled the project team to get insight into the European sport policy and more specifically into grassroots sport. Major sport stakeholders presented their vision of the EWoS such as the European Olympic Committees, the Czech and German NOC – which were national coordinator of the 2015 edition – and the Sport Unit of the EU Commission. Additionally, the participants visited the EU Parliament and its hemicycle.

The participants also took part in 2 workshops facilitated by experts in collective intelligence: the 1st one was called “Building a common vision of the EWoS” and the 2nd “Designing your project in the framework of EWoS”. It led to deeper discussions on the involvement of the Olympic movement in the EWoS and to fruitful exchanges on the possible projects implemented in this framework. The workshops were punctuated by short “let's move sessions” during which the participants experimented some well-being behaviour (acupressure methods like the fakir mats (“beds of nails”), stretching techniques).

The Lithuanian NOC will host the team of the project “Sport for Everyone” for the upcoming Seminar on the dissemination workplan. On the 8th and the 9th of September the consortium will validate the content of the Handbook and plan the way it will be disseminated through Europe.

The participants will first go through all the good practices identified which can be linked to one of the 4 focus Days of the EWoS (Workplace, Education, Outdoors & Fitness) and approve the content of the different chapters. The second session consists of designing the dissemination workplan. The representatives of the 5 countries will contribute to the promotion of the Handbook notably by relaying information in their own country and by presenting it during national and European meetings.

The Handbook for joining the European Week of Sport is on its way

Vilnius, 9-11 September 2016

At the occasion of the 2016 European Week of Sport (EWoS), the National Olympic Committee (NOC) of Lithuania hosted from the 9 to the 11th of September the team of the Erasmus + co-funded project “Sport for Everyone” in Vilnius. After the greeting words of its President, Daina Gudzineviciute, the representatives of the 4 partner NOCs (France, Italy, Portugal and the Republic of Macedonia) and of the think tank Sport and Citizenship, pursued their work on the content of the Handbook for joining the EWoS.

Since July 2015, the project team has been exchanging experience linked to the 4 Focus Days of the EWoS (Workplace, Education, Outdoors & Fitness). The team selected a various and rich panel of good practices in these 4 fields mentioned above - which will be compiled in the Handbook - so as to provide the sport movement with inspirational ideas to make people be more physically active in their own country. Additionally to the good practices, a methodological guidebook - named “how to join the EWoS in 8 steps” - is included in the Handbook to help the sport organisation to build step by step their own event.

The Seminar was also the occasion to get into the #BeActive spirit of the 2nd edition of the Week. The Lithuanian national coordinator of the EWoS, the Association Sport for All, presented its labelled-events such as the children run during the Vilnius marathon and the municipalities' games. As the city of Trakai located close to Vilnius is a vibrant outdoor setting to practice sport, the participants were also eager to make their own run under the #BeActive banner on Saturday the 10th. The Seminar ended up on Sunday the 11th with the attendance of the Vilnius marathon's departure.

The draft Handbook for joining the EWoS will be presented at the end of November 2016 in Brussels during the Closing Seminar which will be held in the margins of the Special Competence Seminar of the European Olympic Committees. The English online version will be then available in early December 2016 on the website of the project “Sport for Everyone”.
