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
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 [email protected]
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.
