UK Sport Development Research Network (UKSDN) 2017 National Conference Plymouth

  • Conference Call
  • On behalf of the Organ­is­ing Com­mit­tee, we are delighted to invite you to join us on Fri­day 17 Novem­ber, in Ply­mouth for the UK Sport Devel­op­ment Research Net­work (UKSDN) 2017 National Con­fer­ence.

    We antic­i­pate a large 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 an impor­tant 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.

    The con­fer­ence will be hosted by The Uni­ver­sity of St Mark & St John, Ply­mouth and ActiveDe­von who have worked closely in con­junc­tion with the UKSDN in organ­is­ing this year’s event.

    Keynote Speech

    Revis­it­ing the Elite – Com­mu­nity Sport Prob­lem­atic: Seek­ing answers in the Government’s ‘Sport­ing Future’ Doc­u­ment – Dr Jonathan Grix, Uni­ver­sity of Birmingham

    Con­fer­ence Topics

    This year’s con­fer­ence theme is – ‘Cre­at­ing a Sus­tain­able Sport­ing Future: Issues, Path­ways and Oppor­tu­ni­ties‘. We are plan­ning a range of rel­e­vant sym­posia and ple­nary ses­sions that cut across the sport and phys­i­cal activ­ity debate:

    • inte­gra­tion with the pub­lic health community
    • sus­tain­ing com­mu­nity sport clubs
    • pro­mo­tion of a vol­un­teer­ing culture
    • chal­lenges in the rural environment
    • impli­ca­tions for a sus­tain­able fund­ing strategy
    • pro­mot­ing inclusion
    • inno­va­tions from practice

    We are now invit­ing indi­vid­u­als or groups inter­ested in pre­sent­ing at the con­fer­ence to sub­mit an abstract. We encour­age sub­mis­sions from aca­d­e­mics and prac­ti­tion­ers. Par­tic­u­larly wel­come are sub­mis­sions based on col­lab­o­ra­tion between aca­d­e­mics and prac­ti­tion­ers (given the com­mit­ment of the UKSDN to encour­age the devel­op­ment of this relationship).
