Every year from 23 to 30 September, the European Week of Sport (EWoS) promotes more active, healthier lifestyles to millions of people in Europe and beyond. This year’s seventh edition of the event will take place under the overarching theme of highlighting the power of physical activity to bring joy, building resilience, and connecting generations.
As one of the official partners of EWoS who help spread the message of the benefits of active, healthy lifestyles, ICSS INSIGHT, an entity under the umbrella of the ICSS, will organise two interactive e-forums during EWoS with the aim of further strengthening the EU Commission’s #BEACTIVE campaign.
Explaining the significance of the partnership, Massimiliano Montanari, CEO of the ICSS, said, “As the official partner of EWoS since 2105, our objective is to also this year add value and contribute to a global debate regarding the achievements and challenges facing the world of sport. Such discussions are essential in the promotion of coordinated actions and to provide a strategic direction to the individual and collective efforts of organisations who, like the ICSS, work to protect sport from violence, abuses and corruption.”
To contribute to the activities of the European Week of Sport and the #BEACTIVE campaign, the ICSS will organise the following interactive e-forums:
Within this topic the panellists will debate current concerns and solutions related to Match Fixing and Corruption in Sport – with a focus on building networks, strengthening cooperation and resilience in face of the main threats to sports integrity.
Within this topic the panellists will debate current concerns relating to Gender Balance and Empowerment of Women, Social Inclusion of People with Disabilities, and the Prevention of Violent Extremism and Radicalisation.
