The 9th MOVE Congress is set to unearth the next game-changers for grassroots sport and physical activity promotion. Are you one of them?
Rapidly changing technologies and trends are turning traditional sport and physical education upside down. The demand to adapt and rethink how we can keep people MOVING is a global challenge for all physical activity promoters. How can we get into the game and make a difference?
Join us in Budapest, Hungary, on 16-18 October 2019 and connect with up to 500 likeminded professionals from around the globe who are finding innovative ways of MOVING people.
Meet speakers who are shaking up their sectors by: joining the dots between physical activity and health; rethinking physical education; pioneering grassroots sport diplomacy; and using placemaking to create spaces for physical activity. Discover secrets to securing public, corporate and foundation funds. And try the latest technologies that are both disrupting and creating new opportunities for our work.

A lot of people at the Congress are very interested in the This Girl Can campaign. It’s been such an experience. I’m so grateful and thankful for you having me here and I think it’s one of the best things I could have attended for my career.
I’m from the field of physical activity and public health, so for me I come to the Congress, which is particularly on grassroots sport, I now see the role that grassroots sport plays in promoting physical activity to the whole population.
You grow old in your ideas if you don’t interact with people. So I’ve already heard some interesting things about campaigns on a local and national level that I wasn’t aware of. They made me stop and think. I’ll share them with my members and take them away.
The world has many problems, like obesity and sedentariness, so it’s necessary to make these sorts of events because the world and its cities need solutions.
The personal relations you get here are really valuable always. The common European/global platform of seeing how sport can actually make changes is a lot stronger now than it was a few years back for sure.
I attended my first MOVE Congress in 2013 and left in awe of the contacts I made and knowledge shared by all participants. I am looking forward to learning more, collaborating more and expanding opportunities through this global initiative!
The main plus, I would say, of the Congress is the rich and diverse experiences, and the possibility to have side discussions with people and go deeper into questions that we sometimes wouldn’t get the chance to do.
The MOVE Congress in Rome has sent a strong message to the European Parliament and the Italian Government, which is that “sport for all” is an internationally recognised movement.
