EuropeActive Weekly Update

EuropeActive’s strategy for Covid19, reopening and beyond
Wednesday 17th June, 13:00 CEST
In 2019 EuropeActive started the process of writing a new strategy for 2020-2025. We had planned to launch and present this strategy at the European Health and Fitness Forum in April 2020. But then… “corona happened.” As a result, we have set out a strategic course which will bridge our C19 response with our primary 2025 strategic goals. Our second Meet the Press-style webinar will give you insight into our strategic planning for 2020/2021 and beyond.
