EMOCS – European Meetings of Company Sport – and PACTE – Promoting Active Cities Throughout Europe – are teaming up to company sport and cities all together in Brussels on the 21st of June 2019.
With over 200 million inactive citizens, physical inactivity has become one of the most pressing challenges in Europe. Despite growing scientific evidence and political attention on the benefits of promoting healthy lifestyles at national and European levels in recent years, the sedentary crisis is developing. We believe there is an opportunity to reverse this trend and that workplaces have a fundamental role to play.
Active Workplaces have been overlooked as a setting of focus to promote healthy lifestyles. Yet this is the place where Europeans spend most of their time.
What are the main elements of an Active Company? Which successful partnerships are needed? What role can a city play? How to engage into a certification process around PA?
This workshop is open to anyone from city leaders, human resources managers and companies, local representatives, sport organisations, public authorities, health structures… It will explore, discuss and challenge the main elements of an Active Company.

Promoting Active Cities Throughout Europe -PACTE – is a three year project, financed by the Erasmus + program, which focuses on physical activity rates across Europe from a municipal perspective and on the creation of Active Cities. Previous projects and recent research have highlighted some alarming facts as concerns physical activity across Europe.
FOCUS ON THE PACTE MATRIX
