Welcome

On behalf of the Organising Committee, we are delighted to invite you to join us on Friday 17 November, in Plymouth for the UK Sport Development Research Network (UKSDN) 2017 National Conference.

This year’s conference theme is – ‘Creating a Sustainable Sporting Future: Issues, Pathways and Opportunities ‘. We are planning a range of relevant symposia and plenary sessions that cut across the sport and physical activity debate:

  • integration with the public health community
  • sustaining community sport clubs
  • promotion of a volunteering culture
  • challenges in the rural environment
  • implications for a sustainable funding strategy
  • promoting inclusion

The conference will be hosted by The University of St Mark & St John, Plymouth and ActiveDevon who have worked closely in conjunction with the UKSDN in organising this year’s event.

Visitors to this site can find out more about attending the conference, presenting your work and we’ll also keep the full conference programme updated here.

We look forward to welcoming you to Devon and are certain you will take home memories of an enjoyable and informative event, excellent hospitality and new friends.
