What is it?

The #5minChallenge is this year’s digital initiative to get as many Europeans moving as possible. For the #5minChallenge, we are asking everyone to be active for (at least) 5 minutes and post a short video or photo on social media. This can be anything from a workout routine, a walk to school/college/work, funny or serious it doesn’t matter!

How to take part?

Post your #5minChallenge photo or video to social media.

On Twitter: using the hashtags #5minChallenge #BeActive and tag @SportIreland

On Instagram: using the hashtag #5minChallenge #BeActive + @european_youth_eu and @SportIreland


There will be prizes so get recording and post your #5minChallenge

Challenge others?
Feel free to challenge someone else by tagging another person’s profile in your post. It could be anyone! A friend, favorite athlete, #BeActive Ambassador, politician, actor, etc.

We would love to see you taking part and encouraging participation, check out the example from Ukrainian Ambassador Olga Saladukha for inspiration
