Why Sports 2019 

18th September  2019 

Since early 2016 the Sporting Future and Towards an Active Nation strategies have served as a catalyst to increase activity across the UK.

 

Both documents called for the sector to immediately re-evaluate its approach, commitment and direction, in order to reverse the alarming trend of inactivity which is strangling our nation.

 

Since their conception, the sector has started to transform, innovate and collaborate in new ways to meet the needs of our communities. This is not without challenge and is a continuous process, with lessons being learned and shared to improve the whole system.

 

Sport England initiatives to date have focused on a range of audiences including young people, people with disability, gender, age, and demonstrated that our nation can be supported and empowered to move more with different approaches, often working alongside them.

 

At the heart of this work is the 4th Annual 'Why Sports Conference', where we seek to pull all aspects of current policy delivery together for a thought provoking day of debate and collaboration. We examine what has worked and more importantly the lessons learned where things have and have not succeeded. This years conference will seek to include dedicated workshop sessions delivered by Sport England units looking at the 3 key investment themes where continuous learning is paramount.

 

Three years into this policy cycle there is much to reflect upon, to challenge and to share. Our annual conference will be supported by a detailed and interactive pre and post conference community.
