Sport for all — no borders, no limits
One week of collective well-being on Schuman
A GREAT PREMIERE
From 22 to 29
September, the Schuman Roundabout in the heart of Brussel’s European District
will be transformed into a vast multi-sports centre for all.
We invite you
to come along, to discover and participate in these days of collective
well-being, with activities including: basketball, rugby, martial arts, yoga and
relaxation, fencing, chess, dance and many other surprises.
For one week
every year, the European Commission, under the Erasmus+ program, launches a
campaign to promote sport in 41 countries. The Commission oversees a vast
network of partners and associations, which actively convey the message of “sport
and well-being” and motivate all citizens to engage in physical activities.
For this week,
the Schuman Square Association and its partners will install a multi-sports ground
on the Schuman Roundabout and an impressive marquee over the esplanade on Rue
de la Loi. Being very conscious of sustainability, the entire floor will be
covered by recyclable vinyl in the colours of the European flag.
installations will provide an area for sports enthusiasts of all disciplines,
ages, physical abilities and nationalities to come together, with sport being
their common ground.
Among other activities, this includes Finnish boot-throwing, the Baltic
states and their passion for basketball and chess, a diverse range of martial
arts and their champions, the Celtic nations and cricket, the promotion of yoga
as a complement to sport, Bollywood dances, China’s millennia-old sporting
traditions, the Beau Vélo de Ravel, fencing or the art of touching with a bladed
weapon, salsa and Zumba.
With the initiative
taken by Schuman Square Association, the week’s activities have been made
possible by close collaboration with ADEPS and its members, the City and Region
of Brussels municipalities, the neigbouring European Institutions and others
present in the neighbourhood.
