Statement of Support for 2017 European Week of Sport

We acknowledge the important role that the European Commission plays in sport and
actively support the 2017 European Week of Sport.

We share the values of the #BEACTIVE campaign and are committed to promoting
the importance of physical activity and healthy lifestyles for all, particularly for younger
generations. We have no doubt that the activities will help raise awareness about the
issues at hand and help foster the much-needed cultural change, from grassroots up.
We share the objectives that underpin this inspiring initiative and render our support
to the Commission. As a result, we have teamed up with our members and committed
supporters and intend to use the power of social media to engage millennials and
promote, with a series of initiatives, the positive role of sport for the benefit of all
European citizens.

We believe it is time to usher sport into a new era where good governance and integrity
are the number one priorities. The 2017 European Week of Sport is a great opportunity
to work towards achieving this.
