Background Information

From November 1-7, 2008, ICSSPE is hosting its 2nd international Sport in Post-Disaster Intervention seminar.

This initiative in sport in post-disaster intervention builds on a number of conferences and seminars that ICSSPE developed following the devastating South-East Asian tsunami in 2004. Shortly after the tsunami, ICSSPE hosted a seminar in Bangkok, Thailand, on “Rehabilitation through Adapted Physical Activity and Sport.” This was closely followed by a second seminar on “Sport and Reconstruction in the Tsunami Region” held in Berlin, Germany. These events highlighted the need for professional development in this area.
