International Physical Literacy Conferences

The International Physical Literacy Conferences (IPLC) host global leaders who share their best practices and research to advance the worldwide physical literacy movement. They are designed to bring together all sectors' experts, researchers, practitioners, and policy-makers.

Every individual embarks on a physical literacy journey. By developing physical literacy across the lifespan, individuals empower themselves to be better at work and physical activities, as well as having better mental health and happiness. This also empowers them to better engage with their community. It is important to every sector, and each sector has a role to play in ensuring everyone has the opportunity to develop physical literacy. 

The International Physical Literacy Conference New York, hosted by the Sport for Life Society, New York Road Runners and Physical Literacy for Life, will be the first conference to be held in this region on May 1 – 5, 2023 with pre conference workshops. It will host global leaders to share their best practices and research to advance the worldwide physical literacy movement.
