The French Week of Sport, Sentez-Vous Sport, is an event that has been organised by the French National Olympic and Sports Committee (CNOSF) since 2010.
The goal of the week is to gather French citizens every September around sport, to raise awareness and encourage them to be physically active regularly. Thousands of events and various activities around sport and physical activity (conferences, demonstrations…) are offered to people throughout France, who can participate regardless of their age or physical condition.
In 2014, six million participants took part to one of the 11 000 Sentez-Vous Sport events.
The 6th edition will take place next month, from the 12th to the 20th of September in France and its overseas departments and territories. The French Week of Sport is structured around thematic days:
-The Vital Sport events (in partnership with Decathlon) will take place on the weekend of the 12th and 13th September at 61 locations
-Schools : The school sports day will take place on Wednesday, September, 16th

As a National Coordinator for the European Week of Sport in France, the CNOSF is organising an event in France focused on Sport & the Workplace. The conference, which takes place on September 10th, at the MEDEF (employers union), will be the opportunity to reveal the results of a significant survey about the impact of sport in the workplace on human capital, on business and on civil society.
Four hundred guests are expected at this event, mostly business leaders and human resources directors. Many speakers, from different backgrounds (business world, politics, sport, university…) will debate, exchange and share their experiences through a round-table.
