The International Physical Literacy Conferences (IPLC) host global leaders who share their best practices and research to advance the worldwide physical literacy movement. They are designed to bring together all sectors' experts, researchers, practitioners, and policy-makers.
Every individual embarks on a physical literacy journey. By developing physical literacy across the lifespan, individuals empower themselves to be better at work and physical activities, as well as having better mental health and happiness. This also empowers them to better engage with their community. It is important to every sector, and each sector has a role to play in ensuring everyone has the opportunity to develop physical literacy.
There will be three IPLC's coming soon to an area near you; one global and two regional.
