Member States’ ministers for Sport adopted conclusions on the economic dimensions of sport and its socio-economic benefits.
At the end of last year the European Commission launched the health promotion and disease prevention knowledge gateway. The Gateway is a web portal that will provide reliable, independent and up-to date information on topics related to the promotion of health and the prevention of non-communicable diseases.
In the coming months, high quality data on physical inactivity, sedentary lifestyles and the economic cost of non-communicable diseases will be made available in a comprehensive and user friendly way.
The Gateway follows the call for a healthy lifestyle made in Tartu, which sets out a roadmap for promoting healthy lifestyles in Europe.
