Commenting on the campaign, European Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth, Mariya Gabriel said:


“The #BEACTIVE DAY campaign is a wonderful example of how our partners can contribute to the success of the European Commission’s European Week of Sport. I was impressed by the results of last year’s #BEACTIVE DAY, and now look very much forward to seeing it gain further momentum this year. With EuropeActive and its actors, we join forces to encourage Europeans to be more active, to improve their general health and wellbeing and to make the most of our HealthyLifeStyle4All campaign!”
