MOVE Week 2015 reaches its crescendo!

It’s that time of the year – time to get communities around Europe moving and celebrating the continent’s biggest sport and physical activity festival: MOVE Week.

This year, MOVE Week is stretching from 7-30 September to support the European Week of Sport, and many countries have designated 21-27 September as the week MOVE Week will be in full swing. And this is also reflected in the surge of events registered this week, with total standing at 3850 and the tally still rising by the minute.

There are plenty of opportunities to find your MOVE across Europe, with 13 countries offering over 100 events (including 481 in Poland, 420 in Bulgaria, 414 in Iceland, 346 in Portugal and 327 in Hungary, see the Events page at for more).

And if you are in Latin America you can also find over 5000 MOVE Week (Semana Move Brasil) events in Brazil, plus 800+ Semana MUÉVELA events across Argentina, Colombia, Peru and Uruguay.

It’s time – find your MOVE and celebrate MOVE Week wherever you are!
