ISCA and our partners of the MOVE Congress 2017, Birmingham City Council, SportEngland, StreetGames UK, the Wild Network and Youth Sport Trust, have invited stakeholders and sport-for-all organisations to engage and find solutions to the growing trend of physical inactivity.

We’ve gathered the topics under four tracks and divided the discussions between two days so that everyone would find their hub:

MOVEment Spaces

Reframing Urban Spaces for Physical Activity


To many citizens, today’s cities can feel like hostile environments where high-rise buildings, cars, concrete and fences stand as obstacles to exercising outdoors and feeling safe when doing so. Our speakers will draw on their experiences to show how urban spaces can be reframed as active spaces – even in densely populated cities. In this session, we will look at “green” (parks and green spaces), “black” (paved and asphalt spaces) and “blue” (water) settings that can offer solutions to the perceived lack of MOVEment spaces in our cities.

Removing Barriers – Getting it Right

Engaging Hard-to-Reach Groups in Physical Activity


Although everyone has the fundamental right to move, many social groups are being left behind when it comes to access and awareness of affordable activities that can enhance their wellbeing. As a result, their physical activity levels tend to be much lower and it can be hard to motivate them to take up or continue activities, especially if they are not tailored to their needs. Join the debate and learn from physical activity initiatives and campaigns that have successfully ReMOVED barriers to reaching the “hard-to-reach”.

Me Time, Wellbeing Time – WILD Time!

Bringing Physical Activity Back to Nature


As modern work and technology consume more and more
hours from our day, the need to “create time” is starting to dominate the wellness space: time for ourselves, time to look after our bodies and time to reconnect with nature. MOVE Congress partner The Wild Network believes the answer to combating sedentary behaviour among adults and children,
and reclaiming our “me time” and “wellness time”, is through WILD time. Join this session to discover the advantages of un-taming your physical activity offers and bringing your participants back to nature!

Active School Communities

Creating an Active Culture for Every Child


Despite physical education reforms in some countries, opportunities for physical activity are still vanishing from the average school day. This session will reveal how different stakeholders are working with schools on innovate approaches to physical activity before, during and after school. Our speakers will show how programmes are targeting children that need the support and confidence to MOVE more, and addressing the physical, social and emotional barriers that their influence their motivation. Discover your role in building active school communities!
