Join us at the second MOVING Age conference



ISCA is pleased to invite you to our second MOVING Age conference in the beautiful city of Trieste,

Italy, from 20 - 22 May 2016. The conference will be hosted by Associazione LUNGA VITA ATTIVA,

one of the MOVING Age Network members in collaboration with Federazione Italiana Nuoto Federal

Centre Trieste.

 

The expected impact of demographic changes on society has raised the topic of active ageing high

on political agendas all over the world. Despite the overwhelmingly positive evidence of the benefits

of physical activity, rates of physical inactivity among elderly people remain unacceptably high (up to

70% of the over 55 age group, according to the Eurobarometer 2013 survey).

 

The challenge of promoting physical activity to elderly people is too big for one stakeholder

only and even for the sport sector alone! Building constructive partnerships between different

stakeholders and sectors is the natural step forward.

 

The conference programme will feature interactive workshops covering the following topics:

 

• Strategic approaches to national and international advocacy initiatives that reduce physical

inactivity among elderly people.

• Fundraising opportunities for active ageing projects.

• Exchange of new practice examples.

• Cross-sector partnerships. Why - Who - How?

• Creating cross-sector networks for physical activity promotion among elderly people.

 

Participants are invited to make a presentation on one of the topics mentioned above. Please send an

abstract by 1 March 2016 to hartmann-herbert@t-online.de

 

The aim of the MOVING Age Conference is to promote communication and interaction among

participants, speakers and moderators by using a blend of traditional and innovative methods and

techniques. All participants will be asked to share opinions, questions and examples.

 

Your presence will be of great relevance to valorising our proposal to discuss one of the most important

topics at present “sport and physical activity for elderly people”. We would be very happy to see you at

the MOVING Age Conference and look forward to hearing from you.
