MOVE WEEK

MOVE Week is an annual Europe-wide event taking place in May. It is an integral part of the NowWeMOVE campaign. The objective of MOVE Week is to promote the benefits of being active and participating regularly in sport and physical activity throughout Europe. A wide range of promoters of physical activity (who we call MOVE Agents) coordinate events, including existing and new physical activities, for MOVE Week. In 2017 every country can choose when to implement MOVE Week in the timeframe of 29 May - 04 June according to their specific needs. This timeframe coincides with the official dates of the European Week of Sport (EWOS) for national events. MOVE Week National Coordinators can therefore choose one week between the official EWOS dates to stage MOVE Week in their countries. MOVE Week and the NowWeMOVE campaign are being coordinated centrally by the International Sport and Culture Association (ISCA) in collaboration with the European Cyclists' Federation (ECF). MOVE Week is financially supported by the European Union.

MOVE AGENTS

MOVE Agents are the stars of MOVE Week. They make MOVE Week happen. A MOVE Agent can be a grassroots sport organisation, club, school, university, voluntary group, company, municipality/city or individual who organises a sport and physical activity event for MOVE Week. It is the MOVE Agent's job to choose their event type and location, register it on the portal at moveweek.eu, gather the team they need to implement it, promote it in their communities and oversee it when it unfolds on the day(s). A MOVE Agent is a voluntary position, but ISCA and the National Coordinators in each country can give them advice on how to seek funding and support for their events. Toolkits, posters, flyers, banners and other promotional materials are also available to help MOVE Agents plan, gather support for, promote and stage their events. MOVE Agents can simultaneously be part of MOVE Week and the European Week of Sport when they stage their MOVE Week events.

NOW WE MOVE

What is the relation between the NowWeMOVE campaign and the European Week of Sport? The NowWeMOVE campaign and its flagship event MOVE Week have been developed and rolled out in since 2012 parallel to the ongoing deliberations on an EU week of sport. ISCA has systematically given its input to these deliberations and has contributed its experience from MOVE Week in this regard. At the Launch Conference on 11 June 2014, Commissioner Vassiliou presented the first concepts for an EU week of sport, following consultations with ISCA and other stakeholders, and ISCA presented the MOVE Week as a very tangible and well-tested concept that should link directly to the proposed week. For the sake of collaboration, we have decided to open the dates of MOVE Week in 2015 to coincide with the first implementation of the European Week of Sport. Having a fully developed concept and implementation vehicle, based on the earlier editions of MOVE Week, ISCA believes that can dramatically increase the impact and reach of the first edition of the European Week of Sport.
