Call for proposals: #BeActive awards
Created in 2015, the #BeActive awards aim to reward and give visibility to projects and initiatives that have successfully promoted sport and physical activity across Europe. It contributes to the HealthyLifeStyle4All initiative and to the promotion of substainable and green sport.
The awards have 4 categories
#BeActive Education Award
This award aims to demonstrate how education can encourage kids to #BeActive outside the typical sport/physical activity taking place in their normal school day. This may include additional activities, scheduling days outside of class that focus on sport, after-school activities and other creative solutions that build an active education environment.
#BeActive Workplace Award
This award celebrates exemplary activities in the workplace that encourage employees to #BeActive. This may include setting up a staff taskforce responsible for promoting physical activity, provision of showers for cycling/running commuters, standing meetings, lunchtime walks and other creative solutions to form an active working environment.
#BeActive Local Hero Award
This award honours individual achievement in motivating others to #BeActive. The award recognises individuals who have worked consistently to promote participation in sport and/or physical activity in their local community.
#BeActive Across Generation Award
A new award, it honours projects promoting inter-generational sport, celebrating the fact that everyone can benefit from activities that improve health and well-being. Projects may include promoting activities for, raising awareness among or easing access to physical activities for all generations.
From this year on, the #BeActive Awards are open directly to citizens and organisations in the EU Member States and third countries associated to the Programme.
The process will be managed by the European Education and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA).
The deadline for applications is 19 May and the #BeActive Awards Ceremony will take place in November.
