About our EU Affairs programme

You are here

EuropeActive actively works to protect and promote the health and fitness sector by participating in a range of different working and expert groups organised by European Institutions such as the Commission, Parliament and the World Health Organisation. The EuropeActive EU Affairs Team is participating in events organised by relevant associations, institutions, and civil society organisations in the key policy areas of interest to the fitness sector.

To help inform our members and stakeholders, the EuropeActive EU Affairs Team have developed a series of position and information papers on main policy areas which directly affect the fitness sector. These include health-enhancing physical activity; skills, education and employment; anti-doping (in recreational sport), social dialogue and the position of the European Union and Sport.

In addition to the regular attendance at the EU Sport Forum, EuropeActive is a member of the EU Platform for Action on Diet, Physical Activity and Health, the Platform for Active Ageing, and a core partner of the European Commission in its major initiative of the European Week of Sport

All conferences, events and activities attended by the EU Affairs team are published twice monthly in the Brussels Bulletin.
