Open Streets Day on 22 September set to turn busy streets into spaces for physical activity

If you had the streets to yourself for a day, what would you do? With ISCA's new event, Open Streets Day on 22 September, you don't need to imagine what an open street could look like - you can actually make it happen.

Serving as a bridge between European Mobility Week and the European Week of Sport - #BeActive 2019, ISCA is organising Open Streets Day together with our members and partners to highlight the city as our biggest potential playground.

So get out and celebrate movement, neighbourhood pride, community-building, sport and culture. On 22 September the streets will belong to all of us!

What would you do if the busiest streets in your city were empty - free from cars, trucks, motorbikes, noise and relentless traffic? Would you run around, do cartwheels or simply just chill out with a bit of yoga?

How my team of 3 started an open streets tradition in Vilnius 

Organising an Open Streets Day event may not seem like an easy task. But Mantas Paulauskas and his small team of three sport and physical activity enthusiasts, and in collaboration with ISCA member LKSKA Nemunas, started a car-free Sunday Sports Day in the heart of Vilnius which became so popular that it has now become a regular event in the capital that local clubs are knocking on his door to join in.

"This is an extraordinary opportunity for us" 

ISCA recently issued an open call for European leaders in grassroots sport and physical activity to take part in our new MOVE Transfer Europe-China project. Now we have announced the 22 Chinese and 20 European partners that will be part of the Europe-China exchanges organised under the project. We spoke to both Chinese and European partners of the project about the "extraordinary opportunity" it presents to discover more about grassroots sport across continents and cultures.

Chinese partners: "Learning from European countries is essential for us"
European partners: "This could be the most important sport project for a decade"
