The #WSPA2024 conference will provide an opportunity to learn from leading schools, education partners, policymakers and researchers on school-based physical activity. The two-day programme will involve an exciting mix of keynotes, symposiums, co-design workshops, and poster presentations. We have secured keynote speakers from across the globe to share stories of their success and challenges in creating positive cultural change for physical activity within schools and the border educational system. More details of the keynote speakers can be seen on the highlighted speakers page. As the programme has developed, we have been excited by the enthusiasm from our partners across the globe.

The University of Bradford, Wolfson Centre for Applied Health Research & Yorkshire Sport Foundation are pleased to invite you to our inaugural, International Whole-School Physical Activity Conference taking place in Bradford, UK.

While the conference is focused on schools, we felt it was important to showcase learning on how schools are part of a wider physical activity ecosystem. The JUMP whole-system physical activity team from Bradford will present the UK’s first whole-system approach to promoting physical activity for children and young people aged five-to-14. Sport England funded this pioneering programme as part of a £100 million investment across 12 initial local delivery pilots tasked with creating whole-systems change for physical activity within their locality.

Pre-conference event

The #WSPA2024 pre-conference event will draw together leading researchers and evaluators of school-based programmes from across the globe. Keynotes and panel debates will advance our understanding of how to evolve research methodology to evaluate the effectiveness and implementation of complex whole-school physical activity programmes. We encourage delegates to submit oral and poster presentations to share their own research, with a specific focus on the methods used.

The #WSPA2024 pre-conference will involve leading international keynotes, symposiums, presentation sessions, panel debates, and poster presentations. Why not join over 120 delegates from around the globe to help advance school-based physical activity research.
