Active Communities Network and London South Bank University are proud to announce that we are co-hosting the 2019 UK Sport Development Network conference ‘Sport for Development: What are we developing?’

Join us on the Thursday 11th and Friday 12th July to discuss key issues affecting the sport for development and community sport sectors. The conference will provide a platform for exploring contemporary topics in globally challenging areas such crime, obesity, mental health, BAME engagement etc. It will bring together academic researchers with practitioners and influencers, policy makers, funders and wider stakeholders who aspire to achieve social impact by using sport, play and physical activity. We are open for abstract submissions until 30th April 2019 from researchers and practitioners working in the this field.

The organising committee would welcome submissions themed around the following areas to build this year’s programme:

Sport for Personal Development

Sport for Inclusion

Sport for Physical and Mental Health Well-being

Sport for Social, Community and Policy Development

Sport for Cohesion and Integration

Sport for Crime and Antisocial Behaviour Prevention

This will be the 9th consecutive UK Sport For Development conference and we hope to make it the biggest yet with over 200 delegate spaces available.
