Running from 7th to 13th October, MOVE Week 2013 is an annual Europe-wide event and an integral part of the NowWeMove (2012-2020) Campaign, coordinated by International Sport and Culture Association (ISCA) in collaboration with European Cyclists’ Federation (ECF) in 2013, aiming to get 100million more European active by 2020.

They can include, for example, individuals, Local Sports Councils, schools, Leisure Trusts and Local Authorities from all European countries.
