Save the dates: No Elevators Day and MOVE Week 2018
The time to start planning your next No Elevators Day or MOVE Week event is now. The official dates for the NowWeMOVE campaign’s biggest events in the first half of 2018 are set: No Elevators Day will take place on 25 April and MOVE Week from 28 May-3 June.
No Elevators Day encourages everyone to take the stairs instead of the elevator for their health and wellbeing. It is aimed at busy office workers, but anyone can take the chance to seal off an elevator or escalator in their community as a fun way to get their peers active. No Elevators Day will go global in 2018 – stay tuned for more information.
MOVE Week was established in 2012, so 2018 will be the 7th edition. Thousands of events take place simultaneously across Europe in a week-long festival of sport and physical activity. They can include open door or “try-it” events at local clubs, walking events, fun runs, bike tours, street sport events, school sports events, company activities, activities organised for hard-to-reach groups – the possibilities are only limited to our imaginations!
Anyone can register as a MOVE Agent: sport clubs, schools, individuals, municipalities, companies – anyone with an interest in promoting physical activity in their communities.
