Theme – Working Together

The theme of this year’s Summit is “Working Together”. If we want to give participants in sport and physical activity the best possible chance to succeed, then we must ensure collaboration within the sport system and across the recreation, education and health sectors. Partnership and working agreement are needed at all stages of development. Given multisport athletes are more likely to thrive later in their chosen sport, what are we doing to collaborate at the early stage? This year’s Summit seeks promising practices to share with the delegates. There are great examples of ‘Working Together’ so now let’s work together to share and utilize them to create systematic change.
