Change the game 2018

Pep-talks for professionals 13–14/9

New approaches and perspectives for increasing children’s activity.

Change the game organizes training days for those working in different sectors, creating the conditions for children to become more physically active and thus better and better perform. Leading experts convey valuable insights and show how they can be used in practice for activities and collaboration, with physical literacy as a common denominator. 

Last year, around 230 people attended, including school, sports, health care, recreation and academy. Interest is increasing for physical literacy and we offer a larger program in larger premises this year so that more people can participate and provide space for more practical exercises.

Warm welcome!
