First European Week of Sport to take place in 2015

The European Week of Sport (EWoS), designed to promote participation in sport and physical activity across Europe, will be held for the first time in 2015.
On 20 November 2013 a preparatory seminar took place in Brussels where representatives of the European Commission and major stakeholders exchanged experiences and learnt about existing national sport weeks, days and events. The discussion covered mainly the objectives, organisational structure, activities, finance issues and communication and will feed into the format of the future week. The European Commissioner Vassiliou will announce the final concept in a conference, which is likely to take place on 11 June 2014 in Brussels.
