Conference on sport

This conference on safe physical activity and sport for children and youth is expected to gather some 120 experts, policy-makers and decision-makers in the field of sports. The set goal is to benchmark practices, ensure a safe sporting environment for children and youth and find ways to prevent bullying, harassment and injuries.

On 23 September, Finland will also co-host with the European Commission the official opening of the European Week of Sport. The inauguration coincides with the School Action Day, a physical exercise event organised for some 10 000 schoolchildren. On the same day, there will be a seminar on the promotion of children’s and young people’s physical activity.
