The #BeActive Awards were created to support projects and individuals that are dedicated to promoting sport and physical activity across Europe.
The awards have 4 categories. Commissioner Gabriel will award the winners for each of the prize categories.
The finalists have been chosen for the eight edition of the #BeActive Awards ceremony, which will take place in Brussels on 28 November, 2022.
With no less than 62 projects submitted to the competition, a dedicated High-Level Jury evaluated the projects in order to select the best.
Twelve finalists have been announced to compete for the grand prize in each category. Each finalist will receive €2 500, while each of the three first-place winners will receive €10 000.
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.
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.
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.
This award 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.
