Upcoming Conference “Sports and Sustainable Development Goals in Childhood: Societal issues regarding appropriate physical activities”
We’re very excited to share that Dr. Noel Doyle of Leave No Trace Ireland will be partaking in the upcoming conference “Sports and Sustainable Development Goals in Childhood: Societal issues regarding appropriate physical activities”. As part of one of the roundtable discussions, Noel and international colleagues will be addressing the importance of how to raise awareness in sport for environmental and climate issues.
This conference is being held across two days, 7th – 8th February, in Paris, France.
Other topics being examined during the conference include;
- Should certain physical activities and sport be prioritised according to the age of the child or adolescent, in order to support their physical, social and cognitive development?
- How do physical activities and sport, practiced by children and adolescents, contribute to achieving sustainable development goals?
- How can more awareness be raised in this context about sustainable development challenges?
What are the levers for action at European level?
These challenges will be examined during the ministerial conference. Experts, stakeholders and decision-makers will be discussing best practices, looking at the role of sports at the different stages of child development in terms of health, physical integrity and sustainable development education.
This is a blended conference – with many events taking place with in person attendees. Dr Noel Doyle will be participating remotely.
