IPLA Forum: Physical Literacy – Moving Forwards


Wed 28th June – Fri 30th June 2017

The IPLA is planning a forum that will take place at The Liner Hotel, Liverpool on 28th – 30th June 2017. The forum is open to all members and non-members and we very much hope that you will be able to attend.

The foci for the event will be to build on the success of last year’s workshop, share best practice, research and ideas in relation to engaging the wider community in developing physical literacy across the world. Margaret Whitehead will be the only keynote speaker and if you wish to contribute to the forum in a more formal way (15 minute presentation) then we invite you to submit an abstract in relation to one of the following:

  • Session 1: International – What has been happening around the world?
  • Session 3: Research & scholarly activity
  • Session 4: Sharing physical literacy with a wider audience.
  • Session 5: Advocacy

If you wish to do a short 15 minute presentation – e.g. a short paper, case study or initiative you are involved with then please send it to [email protected] Your abstract should not be longer than 300 words.

The forum will be interactive and we believe that the programme will enable you to benefit personally and professionally through your engagement. The structure of the forum is indicated below but may be subject to modification.
