[en] Communities are in the center of the action aiming to promote physical activity. Their links with the schools are a determining factor for the global policy. This presentation is focused on the current situation of this necessary collaboration in a European region: Wallonia (French speaking part of Belgium). Several studies conducted since the beginning of the 21st century are analyzed in order to point out the real relationships between the schools and the communities. Between the theory based on the official policies and the concrete actions implemented on the field, it seems that the vision is less enthusiastic than expected.
