The International Physical Literacy Association and Change the game have agreed to enter a Memorandum of Understanding regarding cooperation in the promotion, operationalization, and evaluation of physical literacy. In addition to working together to provide specific expertise in the development of programmes, services and advocacy material to support the continued awareness of the positive implications of physical literacy for persons of all abilities and ages.
– IPLA is really excited to have an MOU with Change the Game, Sweden. We know of the excellent work that Change the Game has done over the last ten years in promoting physical activity and physical literacy. IPLA looks forward to collaborating over developments related to creating engaging physical activity environments, promoting Inner Development Goals and sharing the concept of physical literacy within the wider community.
– We are very happy to have this collaboration in place. It feels like a very honorable confirmation that as a knowledge organization we not only can make an important difference locally and nationally here in Sweden, but can also contribute internationally, says Jonas Olsson, chairman of the board and founder of “Stiftelsen för rörelserikedom” (Foundation for Physical literacy), which runs Change the game.
– This strengthens Change the game’s capacity to be able to help those leaders and organizations who are curious about new approaches to movement as a way to strengthen and develop communities and organizations as well as individuals, says Tom Englén, director Change the game.
