Sport in Society conference

20 October 2014

Please find below the details of Govtoday’s inaugural Sport in Society conference which will be held at the Mermaid Conference & Events Centre in London on 19th November 2014.


Sport In Society will discuss the contribution that sport and physical activity has to offer individuals and communities.  A programme of expert speakers will discuss the importance of an active nation and how that can be achieved. The benefits will be outlined with reference to individual health and wellbeing, community cohesion and economic prosperity. How physical activity interacts with specific groups within society will be further examined and a panel debate will discuss how to engage with and offer the right opportunities for hard to reach sectors of society.
