This year Move Congress will be held in Copenhagen from 5th-7th of November and will gather 250 stakeholders from Europe, North and South America. Whilst awaiting for the start of the Move Congress 2015 we decided to ask the participants about their expectation of the outcomes of the Move Congress 2015 that would be important for them. As few of the MOVE Week national coordinators stated:
“I am looking forward to meet great colleagues (NC, ISCA team) and share experiences with them, networking with new people and widen my knowledge about promoting physical activity through “Advocate. Innovate. Fundraise.” scheme.” Peter Bakalár, MOVE Week National Coordinator, Slovakia
“Learn new things, hear and exchange good practices!” Marina Ivanovic, MOVE Week National Coordinator, Serbia
“Share thoughts and ideas – get motivated and learn from everybody. Focus should be on positive things and our goals – main goals to get people active. We gain our goals with the strengths that are in – and our strength is the empowerment of the team and great project management from ISCA leaders.” Sabína Steinunn Halldórsdóttir, MOVE Week National Coordinator, Iceland.
Clearly the participants are very excited to attend and take part in the conference, gain new knowledge and share their experience with the professionals and experts of the field. This year Move Congress will concentrate on three main topics: advocacy, innovation and fundraising, all very relevant subject in the recreational sport and physical activity sector. The new knowledge and skills will encourage the participants to engage in partnerships and cross-sector collaborations, that motivate more people to be physically active, and contribute to ISCA’s vision of 100 million more Europeans physically active by 2020.
