No Elevators Day - Europe

Wednesday, June 3rd, 2015 | PR

European citizens in 17 countries will be invited to take the stairs instead of the elevator on 5 June 2015 when the International Sport and Culture Association (ISCA) and its local partners stage their first European No Elevators Day. The day will see participating organisations sealing off elevators in more than 180 public and private buildings in more than 50 cities as part of ISCA’s NowWeMOVE campaign promoting grassroots sport and physical activity.

The event is still open for more organisations, companies and citizens to join in by registering their participation on the No Elevators Day website - or just by taking the stairs instead of the elevator on 5th of June.

The participating countries are Albania, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, France, Greece, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Turkey and United Kingdom.

The activities related to No Elevators Day in Brussels will start a few days earlier at the European Parliament, where ISCA is organising an activation dedicated to the importance of physical activity with several Members of the Parliament. The activations continue on 5th of June when ISCA’s activists in the Belgian capital will have the opportunity to climb the stairs of the famous Atomium in Brussels to mark the European No Elevators Day. The initiative will also be supported by the Latvian Presidency secretariat in Brussels and in Riga, and also by the Belgian Ministry of Finance, Green 10 member organisation Transport and Environment and BASE Company, all based in Brussels. The members of the Euro Parliament from all political groups have been invited to join the No Elevators Day as well.
