Active London, the capital’s only conference dedicated to grassroots physical activity and sport in London, returns this year with a focus on how physical activity can become a more equal space and allow more Londoners of every background to benefit from living active lives.
With the covid-19 pandemic having thrown into sharp relief the inequalities experienced by many Londoners, Active London will explore the sport sector’s response and its role in positively influencing the lives of people from all backgrounds over the coming decade.
This year, we are delighted to be making Active London a four-day virtual experience that will provide delegates with the opportunity to explore the relationship between inequality and physical activity in all its forms.
And, for the first time ever, we are able to confirm that Active London will be free-to-attend across all four days of the event.
Day 1 – Back On Our Feet – Monday 12 October
In the space of a few months, life in the capital has been turned upside down.
The first day of Active London 2020 will set the scene for the week ahead, explore why inequalities persist across London and the UK, and ask how physical activity and sport can ensure it doesn’t exacerbate inequality of access and opportunity.
Day 2 – The Real London – Tuesday 13 October
To understand how inequalities influence people’s life choices, it’s vital that the voices of disadvantaged communities are heard and respected.
The second day of Active London 2020 will invite delegates to hear first-hand from Londoners that understand the impact of inequalities through their own lived experiences and explore what the role of physical activity and sport is when working to support diverse communities.
Day 3 – Active Together – Wednesday 14 October
Improving access to physical activity will need us to better understand the place-based conditions and systems that influence people’s lives.
Day 3 of Active London 2020 will take a deeper view of what we mean when we talk about place-based working and systems change, and explore how physical activity and sport can become a part of sustainable solutions to local challenges and objectives.
Day 4 – An Equal Future – Thursday 15 October
As the covid-19 pandemic spread across the world, trends that might have taken years to take hold have accelerated at a pace that risks leaving the physical activity and sport sector playing catch-up.
On the final day of Active London 2020, we will explore what those changes mean for life in the capital, and how changes in thinking here in the UK and around the world might shape a more equal future for physical activity in London.
