MOVE2011 World Congress in Paris


Think global, MOVE local Paris, France, 19 – 23 October 2011

Welcome to the MOVE2011 World Congress – Think global, MOVE local.
We invite you to join us in Paris for four days full of discussions, seminars, meetings and study tours that unquestionably will create new networks of peers from around the world and expand your existing ones.

This year’s congress will foster the vision of getting 100 million more people active in sports and physical activity. What does it take internationally, nationally and locally to reach this ambitious goal? Can we strengthen cross-sector links that enable partnerships and projects producing societal benefits in terms of both health and social cohesion and economic opportunity and sustainability?

MOVE2011 will accordingly explore the following themes:

# PEOPLE – developing customized physical activity offers and opportunities for different target groups.
# PRACTISES  – Trends and challenges in making people active.
# PARTNERS – Making the world move by working together.
