Our Communities Future – Targeting Specific Communities to Encourage an Inclusive Approach

by National Sports Convention | September 10, 2020 | News

During the reactivation of the community post-COVID, it is important to be inclusive to encourage a whole of community approach. Recognising some groups or cohorts may need additional support or a different approach for them to embrace the opportunities to be physically active, to reconnect and participate in community sport.

There are a number of approaches globally and across Australia that has shown success. The NSC Forum workshops across the three cities will explore:

Systems Approach

Systems Approach – The 7 Pillars of Inclusion – Peter Downs, Manager, Play by the Rules
Levelling the Playing Field: Proportionate Universalism; Systems Thinking; and Distributed Leadership – David Burns, Founder & CEO, Collective Leisure

Drivers and Collaborative Approaches

The Drivers for Inclusion and How Collaboration Can Lead to Great Success – Emma Staples, Head of Participation, Community Development & Diversity, Cricket Victoria
The Magic of Sport: providing opportunities for people with a disability – Dr Emma Beckman, Clinical Exercise Physiology, University of Queensland

The panel members that will join the speakers will represent local government, Liverpool City Council (Christine Deaner), VicHealth (Chris Lacey), Pride in Sport (Beau Newell), Disability Sport and Recreation (Ayden Shaw), Susan Alberti Women in Sport (Clare Hanlon), with representatives from the CALD and Indigenous communities.

Each NSC Forum has limited tickets to attend in person, with options available to participate virtually online if not able to attend personally.

With online e-delegate tickets from only $99 +GST, it is expected that demand will be high for delegates in each city to attend, and the first two weeks of registrations are demonstrating that.

The full program is now available to download and be sure to follow the NSC Forums on Facebook, and LinkedIn for all the latest news and updates.
