Nijmegen is world famous for its International Four-Day Marches, a four-day walking event in which 40,000 people participate by walking distances of 30, 40 or 50 km each day. Nijmegen considers its important that everyone can be themselves and feel safe and secure, regardless of their gender or sexual orientation, and their cultural or religious backgrounds when participating in sports activities. That’s why Rainbow City Nijmegen focuses on diversity and inclusion in sport. Nijmegen tries to combat discrimination, and make physical activity and a healthier lifestyle more attainable for all.
LGBTIQ+ sports clubs, mainstream sports clubs and student sports clubs
By hosting the EuroGames, Nijmegen will enhance its character as an open and tolerant city. In addition, it will contribute to inclusion in sport, a goal which Nijmegen really wants to promote. Therefore, by organizing the 2022 Eurogames, it will not only be LGBTIQ+ sports clubs, but also mainstream sports clubs and student sports clubs will be involved, to further highlight the themes of diversity and inclusion in sport. And the municipality of Nijmegen wants to take it one step further: it wants to promote this theme throughout the province, in other cities and towns in Gelderland as well. In order to do so, Nijmegen will develop a programme of side events in Gelderland, which will be implemented in the year preceding the EuroGames.
