  • This event has passed.

London’s Blueprint for a Physically Active City has a vision to be the most physically active city in the world, with a focus on five fundamental areas including championing the development of a bigger and better workforce to support activity. Building a Workforce for the Future questions that ambition and points the way towards developing a workforce that can meet the complex, diverse and evolving needs of Londoners.

On Tuesday 12 December the launch will introduce Building a Workforce for the Future – the journey so far and where we are heading to. Key themes will be explored through panel discussion with experts and leaders including the Royal Society for Public Health and UK Coaching. There will also be the opportunity to network with others from within and beyond the physical activity and sport sector that will have a key role to play in Building a Workforce for the Future.
