Map Europe in action

The Mission 2030 Modules are the result of the Europe in Action project, co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union.

Europe in Action is a three-year project (2019-2022) undertaking an innovative and specialised approach to transfer fundamental and topical European key policy areas in the field of Sport for All into priorities for practical action.

The process of transferring theory into practical action involved the following:

  • Knowledge creation and experience sharing amongst the European Sport for All Movement
  • Mission 2030 Educational Modules development to educate key stakeholders in the field of Sport for All
  • Sport for All Events in different regions of Europe, inviting key stakeholders for networking, knowledge sharing and the presentation of good practices

Europe is facing increasing challenges in terms of widespread physical inactivity which negatively impacts all segments of society. The Eurobarometer survey indicates that the percentage of those who never exercise or play sport has increased to 46%. Hence the need for increased participation in Sport for All and physical activity through research, education, events and further opportunities for knowledge and experiencing sharing. The time to act is now!


Europe is continuing to face many challenges that are impacting citizen’s health and demanding new ways of thinking and acting. This includes major social, economic, environmental and demographic shifts, as well as the ongoing struggle to close the gap that exists in a person’s capability to conduct a heathy lifestyle.
