Healthy Lifestyle 4 All (HL4A) is a two-year campaign launched by the European Commission to promote a healthy lifestyle across generations and social groups.


Kicked-off at the opening of the European Week of Sport in September, HealthyLifestyle4All is designed to link sport and active lifestyles with health, food and other policies.

The initiative has a threefold objective:

  • awareness - improved awareness of healthy lifestyles across all generations
  • access - easier access to sport, physical activity and healthy diets. HL4A has a special focus on inclusion and non-discrimination to reach disadvantaged groups
  • holistic approach - teaming up in an holistic approach to food, health, well-being and sport

Representatives of sport organisations, civil society, international, national, regional and local authorities, are invited to join the initiative and make « pledges » on the Commission’s Sport website. A pledge is a voluntary commitment by an organisation or institution to implement a healthy lifestyle initiative, activity or campaign.
