UKSN Conference 2017: Creating a Sustainable Sporting Future: Issues, Pathways and Opportunities

Delegate places still available

The University of St Mark and St John, Faculty of Sport and Health Sciences, will be hosting, in conjunction with Active Devon, the County Sport Partnership, the 2017 conference of the UK Sport Development Network (UKSDN). The conference will take place on Friday 17th November 2017 on the University Campus. We already have a number of delegates from academia and the sports industry from across the UK, with senior figures participating as keynote speakers and presenters. The conference comes at a significant time for sport development in the UK; following a major sport policy shift by government and at a time when key stakeholders are considering their responses to new priorities.
Places are still available for delegates and we would be delighted if you could join us.

Conference Themes: The physical activity debate:

*    Response of the public health community
*    Sustaining community sport clubs
*    Promotion of a volunteering culture
*    Challenges in the rural environment
*    Implications for a sustainable funding strategy
