Change the game 2021

Welcome to the eighth edition of our annual event, which continues to focus on physical literacy. Our aim is to offer a lot of insights and inspiration. We also hope to be able to add program items in the form of physical gatherings such as active workshops and various activities in Umeå.

En sustainable world with physical literacy – from practice to vision

We have brought together innovators, world-leading experts and passionate leaders who have extensive and valuable experiences of physical literacy. This year’s digital conference will give you both insights and practical exercises as well as examples of successful projects. Together we find new ways to be able to develop collaboration, activities and environments. For sustainable societies, businesses and lives.

Three streams:

  • Collabaration & community development
  • Activities
  • Environments & facilities

You can pick and choose among international and national speakers, take part in lots of new insights and practical applications.
The conference is arranged in the Coeo platform, which also gives you several opportunities to connect with other participants.
