The European Week of Sports is very intense for everyone. While Europeans are enjoying fitness activities, EuropeActive EU affairs team is participating meetings and conferences including:

EuropeActive’s Promoting Physical Activity and Health in Ageing (PAHA) project has been judged to be a success story by a panel of experts from the Directorate-General for Education, Youth, Sport and Culture of the European Commission. It is only one of 15 selected from 237 Erasmus+ projects to be given this special status. The PAHA project focused on a 6-week structured exercise programme to encourage inactive older adults to adopt a healthy and active lifestyle.
