Nijmegen is world renowned for the International Four Day Marches, a four-day walking event in which over 40,000 people participate by walking a distance of either 30, 40 or 50 km each day.
The city of Nijmegen would like to share its belief that everyone should feel safe and secure regardless of gender or sexual orientation, or cultural or religious background. The right to be who you are should be mirrored in sport as well. Nijmegen focuses on this diversity and inclusion in sport, striving to end discrimination, and make physical activity and a healthy lifestyle more attainable for all.
LGBTIQ+ sports clubs, mainstream sports clubs and student sports clubs
By hosting the EuroGames, Nijmegen strives to strengthen the city’s open and tolerant character. In addition, it will contribute to inclusion in sport, a goal which Nijmegen aims to promote. Therefore, by organizing the 2022 Eurogames, not only 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. Nijmegen even wants to take this one step further: it wants to promote this theme throughout the province of Gelderland. 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.
