Leicester-Shire & Rutland Sport Annual Conference
'Delivering An Active Nation'
The Leicester-Shire and Rutland Sport (LRS) annual conference 2017, was held at University of Leicester's Stamford Court on 2 November.
Over 100 new and existing partners attended from schools, local authorities, Public Health, National Governing Bodies of Sport and the voluntary sector to listen and take part in informing and inspiring talks, workshops and clinics throughout the day.
The Chairman of LRS, Andy Reed OBE formally launched the LRS 'Physical Activity & Sport Strategy 2017-2021'. Andy explained, 'A really good strategy is outlining what you're going to stop doing and what you're going to concentrate on doing really well. Collectively we want to reduce inactivity and use sport and physical activity to improve health and build stronger communities'
Resident ITV doctor, Zoe Williams joined the conference and spoke about the need for a more physically active nation. Zoe a practising GP and keen sportsperson referenced the need to develop interventions to encourage population level behaviour change to support communities get active and stay active.
Delegates had a choice of attending two workshops (see below) during which they were challenged to think about what they would do differently to encourage people to be more physically active.
Morning Workshops - Ambition Areas 1. Get Active 2. Stay Active: Active Places 3. Active Economy
Afternoon Workshops - Foundation Areas 1. Well Led: Insight Driven 2. Skilled & Representative Workforce: Marketing & Communications:
The last words go to one of our conference delegates, who said "Dr Zoe was a fantastic, thoroughly engaging, thought provoking speaker. I will be adopting some of behaviour change techniques to support local people get physically active.
