What are EWoS events?

Three levels of events

The European Week of Sport takes place at the EU, national, regional and local level. It is structured to include themes and activities that appeal to all audiences. Essentially, there are three levels of events organized during the EWoS; all aiming to inspire Europeans to #BeActive:

1. European Flagship Event

At the heart of the EWoS is the European Flagship Event which is centrally organized by the European Commission. It brings together sport stakeholders and experts from across Europe. They share good practices and come up with innovative ways to inspire Europeans to get moving. Activities include interactive workshops and a high-profile conference. The Flagship Event culminates in an Awards Ceremony, which showcases some of the best grassroots initiatives in Europe.

2. National Weeks of Sport

EWoS National Coordinating Bodies ensure that the European Week of Sport initiative is implemented and gains visibility through National Weeks of Sport. The Coordinators initiate at least one National EWoS Event. This main national event aims at raising interest for the EWoS in the national media and amongst the general public.

3. Local EWoS Event

A variety of activities may be organized under the umbrella of this National Week in the single countries; be it at national, regional or local level. In principle, any sport stakeholder (federation, public authority, NFP, business, etc.) may organize a Local EWoS Event.
