On the 14th of March took place the Move At Work’s second conference in Brussels, entitled « Towards Sportive and Eco-Responsible Companies: Presentation of the Projects Run4Div and M@W. » This event was a collaborative effort in partnership with the Run for Diversity project, aiming to delve into the intersection of corporate sports, diversity, and environmental responsibility.

Among the speakers, we were honored to welcome Floor Van Houdt, Head of the Sport Unit at the EU Commission, and Cedrik Colinet from the Belgian Presidency of the Council of the European Union 2024. Both speakers offered invaluable insights into the ongoing efforts and priorities of the Commission and the Belgian Presidency regarding sport and physical activity. They highlighted the pivotal role of sport in fostering diversity, equity, and inclusion within corporate environments, emphasising its potential to drive positive change on a societal level.

⭐ The first round table, « How sport can promote diversity in the workplace », provided a scientific perspective through the Run for Diversity study, practical examples from the Commune d’Ixelles and the expertise of the Maltese Federation of Company Sport.

⭐ The second round table, « Company sport: How to integrate eco-responsibility? », was enlivened by feedback from Fédération Française du Sport d’Entreprise-FFSE on their experiences and difficulties, a description of Climate Workout solution and an explanation of the #ESCSE charter.

Our EU affairs advisor, Guy De Grauwe, honoured us with his presence and brought the conference to a successful close with a retrospective of our actions at European level. The conference was brilliantly moderated by Eva Jacomet, who was able to bring out the best practices and elements of the various speakers.
